Instinct de Rue/Street Instinct – Street Photography by Mika Aim

For the International month of the Francophonie, the French Institute of Estonia will organise an exhibition honouring Parisian photographer Mika Aim’s works.

Juhan Kuus Docphoto Centre at Telliskivi Creative City will host this exhibition, called Instinct de Rue, from 2nd March to 1st April, which is made up of a series of black and white photographies about everyday life; moments seized by chance, an encounter with a stranger at the corner of an alley…

When he talks about his photos, Mika Aim evokes an “unveiling of the realistic poetry contained in repeated journeys through the city, from work to home, from home to work,” these regular, banal paths one does not often pay attention to. Situations immortalised by him and his camera include the everyday urban life of cities such as Paris or Nice.

By photographing the same paths, the same metro stations and the same streets, at the same time of day, he tries to bring out poetry, singularity and beauty.
