The Inertia

“I feel myself serene, joyful, deeply peaceful — I’m present here, now, living the moment.” – Mathieu Le Lay

His basic principle? See yourself as a soul with a body, not the opposite.

Whether you walk the ridge or let nature teach you, life is about connecting with your surroundings in a truly visceral way, letting go of real and imagined perceptions and immersing yourself in the moment.

Mathieu Le Lay lives in the moment.

Whether he is in the French Alps near his current home in Annecy, or exploring his home town of Brittany, the photographer sees what he sees, and seizes the moment appropriately.

But don’t think that this is unattainable without so-called “expertise.” All you really have to do is breathe.

And let the moment find you in peace.
