Anne Nwakalor's review on LensCulture (2022):
My favorite photo book is called, “Une part de jour assez douce” translating to “That mellow side of daylight” by French photographer, Nathalie Audrain. In this book, Audrain focuses on the need to remember beauty in case it disappears. She touches on themes to do with a chronic medical condition she has and the relationship she has with her son. Everything about the book is intentional, from its physicality (the book is soft-covered, it has a “soft touch” effect) to interspersed contributions from architects and other artists. As you move through the book, you encounter a series of well sequenced bright images. It’s amazing how Audrain is able to make every day objects and settings seem so meaningful. Audrain’s book is a testament to the saying, “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were big things.”
