In his series A Bright Interval, photographer François Ollivier aims to capture fleeting sparks of winter sun – when it peeks out from behind a cloud and gives us a precious moment of light and warmth.

He explains: "This is about our ability to wander and contemplate things. Or what's left of it. Light in autumn is fascinating and fragile. Everything is brightened by precarious reflections, fading out in minutes, seconds."

From capturing strangers on the street enjoying a small dose of sunlight on their faces to seeing how the gentle, winter light seems to softly glow on the side of buildings – this is a series that will resonate with anyone who appreciates the rare glimpses of sunshine on a cold winter's day.
