Taken in the Louvre on the hottest day of the summer, I hoped to capture the sleepy and almost complacent atmosphere created by viewing art in the heat. Gathering around air vents and sitting in any possible empty place, a quiet lull was in the air. I feel like the simplicity of the photograph is pleasant and reminiscent of childhood and naïvety. This picture was used as an album cover for a band named Drøne.
