From my earliest photographic work, I have had a fascination with works on the body. Raised by a dance teacher mother, my approach to the naked body in particular is naturally free and pure. I see it as a tool of expression and an external representation of our emotions. It is a medium in its own right.
Revealing my body is for me an important step and an affirmation. The nude allows me to materialize my emotions and to transmit my artistic vision. I use it to symbolize my wounds, to better understand them, to accept them and to gradually appropriate my body. Photography is my path to healing.
Like a diary, each photograph represents a thought, a pain... a part of me. I build this intimate and autobiographical visual collection around my disappointments in love, my sexual relationships, the absence of my partners, my hopes. I am researching the understanding of my sexuality.
