With this new issue Eastern currents, Carine reconnects with what she loves the most, to meet people and discover new territories.
Several shootings of “Courants d’Est” have already taken place. What are the places that particularly marked you?
It will be difficult to choose. I don’t know much about the region. For me, it is a discovery with each show and each shoot a new playground. But I can say that what I really liked is the city of Nancy, by its architecture. I admit I fell in love with it. I met a wonderful man there, Jean-François Adam, who continues a pastry tradition called the Saint-Epvre cake. I also really enjoyed walking in the forests of the Ardennes. And the Vosges of course… The whole of the Grand Est has marked me!
Can you tell us about a surprising meeting?
In my beautiful discoveries, I met Mylène Billand, a master glassmaker. A woman who makes tales through her stained glass windows. She tells stories in a small stained-glass theater. I had never seen this in my life.
If you had to describe the region in three words?
If I had to describe the region in three words: warmth, beauty and diversity. Diversity because I understood that each region – Alsace, Champagne-Ardenne, Lorraine – had its own specificity and identity. When we go from one region to another we can see it, the Grand Est is an extremely rich region.
