Where you come from is a series searching for its own historyI don’t know where I come from, so I go ahead to meet others, these portraits are people who have crossed my path since my childhood, with whom I have walked more or less long but who have all touched my curiosity. I wanted to tell their stories that were so special, the ones that took them away from home.I ask everyone: Where did you come from?It seems to me that the answer is a history of territorial memory.This intimate and common question, specifc to a territory, has left its own unique traces in everyone. The feeling of the past is sometimes dif-fcult to identify, probably because we have always lived with it. This question is a common thread that defnes our own territory because it has seen us grow or evolve, a place of pain on which we have often built expectations or desires, a place that is sometimes fragile but which defnes us. From this sensory dimension must spring out of the concrete, creating a space with blurred borders that would have no other certainties than the edges of this anthropomorphic map, designating a place whose limits cannot be touched, a place of memory and oblivion. Identity issues are so diverse that it is opportune to play on diferent degrees of reality. My gesture is to choose to slide towards fction by staging these anonymous bodies in spaces that are rather on the margins, on the margins of what fnally. These bodies survey and invite the exploration of rather banal but abstract territories, as if to suggest a refection of themselves.My images are mostly silver-coloured photographs that have been scanned. Shooting takes place in everyday places to let this poetry sometimes shine through of the spaces we cross every day. The places of shooting are, in France between Lyon, the north, Brittany and the Pyrenees, in Belgium in Brussels capital, in Scotland in the Highlands and in Namibia in the Kalahari desert.
