I really love supermarkets and all these places where I can buy all that I need and even sometimes things I didn't expect to wish. It's so enjoyable and comfortable.

I am Aurélien Durand (a.k.a. Aurdur). I live and work in France.
After my studies in cinema and photography at Lumière University Lyon 2, I worked in the film and advertising industry as a location manager, line producer and assistant director.
In the same time, I wrote, shot and edited videos by myself or with the french artists' collectives Grrrnd Zéro and Pied La Biche.
In 2010, I completed my master degree in documentary filmmaking from parisian cinema school La Fémis ("atelier documentaire").
Now, I'm working as an editor, camera operator and director on several strange documentary projects. Of course I always take my analogue camera with me and shoot "street photography" in my everyday-life.
