“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” says Ferris Bueller in the opening scene of the 1986 movie. If you ask me, everyone should live by Ferris’ advice and take a little time off now-and-again to just look around and appreciate everything life has to offer.
This is certainly a train of thought which runs through the work of the Paris-based photographer Alex Cretey. His ongoing series ‘Let Us Slowdown’ is a project all about appreciating the little moments in life. In his words it’s about “slowing, stopping, standing still, prostration and being stranded”. It’s a beautiful collection of images and a reminder to appreciate the simpler moments of life. Check out the full set of images here.
