Tu Ne Me Chercherais Pas: Romance On The Road in Rural France

London-based photographers Megan Jordan and Brendan Lea spent the summer of 2018 crisscrossing  France on a road trip. The couple had fashion assignments to shoot and departed in a car loaded with film, clothes, and camera equipment. Their assignments took them to various locations in rural France, from the shimmering edge of the Mediterranean to isolated small towns seemingly frozen in time. In the time between assignments, the photographers documented their journey and each other with a tender attentiveness, capturing the unposed  essence of each moment the way only lovers can.

What emerges is a wanderlust-inducing photo diary that evokes heat, love, and a sense of exhaustion. A lyrical and lighthearted portrait of a carefree summer spent on the road, their images are fragmented and dreamlike, intimate and at times poetic. These are the sun-soaked and color-saturated moments that are already fading into memory as they are captured. They show how two artists can have different perspectives of the same experience, offering a textured and voyeuristic glimpse into the different ways we view our surroundings, our lovers, and ourselves.
