|EN| The Passenger is a blog about photography, cinema, and Atmospheres. It’s about certain parts of the world, mine, or those I lived, learned, loved, wanted and suffered. The Passenger is a subtle blend of fact and fiction, intertwined. It is this world that I invite you to read and look to still dream a little, Together. The Passenger is a self portrait of every element that has made my life, that of yesterday and today, sprinkled with mystery, vitality, unanswered questions, to distant adventures, saudade, and love; above all, Love. The Passenger is an unfinished romance, as the life of a man who is still in search of what he seeks, disregarding the passing of time. To make this happen, Nicolas Pascarel wrote his first novel on May 2017 “Un dimanche entre l’hiver et le printemps, 8 heures du matin et tout bascule.” (A Sunday between winter and spring, 8 am and everything rocked.”)
|FR| Le Passager est un blog d’atmosphère sur la photographie et le cinéma. Il parle de certains endroits du monde, les miens, ceux où j’ai vécu, aimé, désiré et souffert. Le Passager est un mélange subtil de réalité et de fiction. C’est ce monde que je vous invite à lire et à ressentir pour rêver un peu ensemble. Le Passager est un autoportrait des éléments qui ont fait ma vie, celle d’hier et d’aujourd’hui, saupoudrée de mystère, d’énergie, de questions sans réponses, d’aventures lointaines, de saudade et d’amour, surtout d’amour. Le Passager est une romance inachevée, comme la vie d’un homme qui poursuit toujours une recherche, sans tenir compte du temps qui passe.
