In her series, La famille incertaine, Claudia Imbert explores the subconscious of a French family. She explores the hidden side of happiness that seems so questionable, slithering before us in silence.

Optimism is merely a façade. But is joy so distant? No, it is very close. Before a background of promise, in the tenderness of a glance, in an object that sings. Sadness is just a coating. We must scratch endlessly. Behind, a mirror reflects both disappointment, and profound humanity.
