L’Heure bleue is a photographic series composed of five portraits of young adolescents. These young girls, from the Deauville-Trouville area, are aged between 12 and 15. They are photographed in the villa Strassburger in Deauville with a light inspired by the masters of the Flemish Golden age. I chose to photograph young girls because I have for some time been intrigued by their evolution in our society. They live in a world of adults where it is difficult for them to find their place, being no longer children but not yet quite women.
