A Momentary Lapse of London

ABOUT A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF LONDON: When I first moved to London two years ago the first period of my relationship with the city wasn’t that great, I couldn’t find a connection, I felt like a stranger and I couldn’t feel any inspiration at all. But then, all of a sudden, one night I was walking on the South Bank when a glorious sunset caught my attention and I experienced that beautiful sensation of feeling like home. And at that point, it was. It has been exactly like when you meet someone and at first you don’t like him/her, but then you hang out for a while and, before you can realise, you’re in love! So the main idea behind this timelapse movie was simply to write a sort of visual love letter to the city that stole my heart and that gives me a lot of inspiration every single day.
