I made this series, like millions of other people, by finding myself facing my camera. A late afternoon light reflecting on the red wall of the room, the branches of the tree playing with the rays of the sun, a white light passing through the window, add to that a 35mm and you get a photo studio. Finding yourself in front of yourself also means understanding your body and its changes. At the end of adolescence this body is still foreign, we continue to discover its hidden corners. Fortunately, the camera allows you to appropriate it, to respond to a world that spends its time explaining to you what a woman’s body is.
