Over the past year, Tamy Emma Pepin and Un Peu Plus Loin, the studio she founded in 2016, have been partnering with Quartz Co. on developing Quartz’s Winter Diaries. Gaining access to the inner workings of creators' lives, the series offers an intimate perspective on how our frigid environment contributes to the artistic process. Whether relaxing with Dave MacMillan, entering High Klassified’s basement bunker or skipping town with Ludivine Reding, Winter Diaries pays homage to our singular and unavoidable nordic climate.
Having recently wrapped its second season, we joined Tamy for a cup of tea to ask her a few questions about winter, creativity and the collaboration with Quartz Co. As the spirited entrepreneur is not one to remain surface-level, the conversation quickly turned to purpose and philosophy. In fact, the producer, director and storyteller speaks with candeur and bright-eyed fascination of the world that surrounds her.
