gou​rmêtre  is about the invention of a word; an “arbitrary” combination of the french words “gourmet” (/gurmε/: connoisseur of fine food) and the verb “être” (/εtr/: to be, to exist).
Apart from that, it is about a photographic project, whose focal point is the subjectivity of these certain things and situations that may offer delight to someone.In this sense, “participants” are asked to follow a specific procedure, in order to track the taste- both literally and metaphorically speaking- which best suites them. The element of food and the way it is being treated, is reflected to  peoples portraits. These images, being accompanied by a short relevant narration of each “protagonist”, highlight their more profound crumples. So, ​gourmêtre is about the way of feeling our most genuine and original moments, but also how we place and see ourselves within them.
