Patricia, 2018

Just like Monte Carlo, Patricia has the international allure that should bring it far outside our borders.
(…) Terrin is a master of the miniature scenes: the small moments, captured so precisely that it seems like you’re not reading them, but experiencing them. Terrin observes with a jealousy-inducing eye for detail and writes it down flawlessly, in his unique, clean style. – Humo ****
