Small Eyes Big City

  • Lilly Guichard

Small Eyes Big City is a way to reconnect with the world through storytelling. Stories possess power: they comfort, connect, destroy, transform, heal. They maintain humanity. And we are all hardwired for stories. As I rediscover my adoptive city London or travel around the world, I learn about new cultures, meet ordinary heroes, find beauty in the simple things we tend to overlook; and translate them into photography and short stories. SEBC is an alternative to the mainstream concept of reality. Created two/three years ago, I recently reconsidered its purpose and rebuilt its DNA. I have redesigned the website . In 2017, I organised an exhibition for my first book launch "Carnet de Voyage" in Havana (more details in my other project). I recently traveled to New Orleans and documented Mardis Gras Indian (more details and images in projects).
