Maman et moi (1)

Derriere la fenetre ouverte
Behind the open window

2023 - ongoing

A daughter's glimpse into her mother's world.

 A 'huis-clos' in the intimacy of her  home, getting to know each other again and (re-)discovering their family history.

"This photographic series is part of a long term project documenting my mother and our relationship. I started this project as a pretext to strengthen and deepen our relationship, beyond the march of time, the kilometers between us, mother-daughter expectations, and cultural differences. I am genuinely curious about my mother's journey and the choices she made as a woman, and I am looking for a way to stand up to her as the woman I have become, with my own ideas and aspirations."

While this project is very intimate, it is also very universal, offering a perspective on the beautiful complexity of the mother daughter bond.

Merci maman, de m’avoir ouvert les portes de ton jardin secret. Je m’y aventurerais avec délicatesse...
