Chicago and LA-based lifestyle, advertising and editorial photographer Martine Séverin has a superpower: creating moments of quiet connection that feel authentic and spontaneous. Her work often has a sense of memories in the making—intimate moments of quiet connection that are the stuff our best memories are often made of. As she puts it, “That day you were sipping your favorite tea, and your grandson looked up from his homework and started an impromptu dance party in the kitchen. Or the day your daughter made the pancakes instead of you, and magically, everyone got along. It’s memories like these we return to again and again.” And it’s that feeling of human connection that always makes Martine’s images so memorable.
