Self-consciousness

To the question « who am I » we are tempted to provide an answer that refers to the body. The body is what may be shown, what is seen by others, what can represent itself. It is not so much a question of knowing who we are essentially that matters here, but rather how and by what means we gain recognition from others. Through this work with self-portrait, I recount a young woman’s search for self-awareness. Positioned as witness, the camera plays an important role in the stages leading there; inciting both self-discovery and self-revelation through the construction of her own image.

Auto-conscience

A la question « qui suis-je » nous sommes tentés de donner une réponse qui nous ramène vers le corps. Le corps est ce qui peut-être exhibé, ce qui est vu par les autres, ce qui peut se représenter. Ce n’est pas la question de savoir qui nous sommes essentiellement qui importe ici, mais ce par quoi nous trouvons une re-connaissance. Par ce travail d’autoportrait, je raconte la recherche de la conscience de soi d’une jeune femme. Placé comme témoin, l’appareil photographique joue un rôle important dans les étapes qui mènent à celle-ci; il l’incite à la fois à se découvrir et à se dévoiler à travers la construction de sa propre image.

My series Self-consciousness exhibited at the 25th Salon Photo Riedisheim

My photo series, Self-consciousness, was exhibited at the 25th photo festival in Riedisheim (a French town in the Upper Rhine) during the month of March. I include a couple of photos of the show, some street shots of Riedisheim and images of Jane Evelyn Atwood’s exhibition installation. Her photographs were printed on waterproof tarpaulin and exhibited outdoors with stunning results. This year, Jane Evelyn Atwood is the patron of the festival and jury member of the Grand Prix Epson RP contest on the theme “feminine”.

Photograph from Tuileries Garden series receives Juror Award of Merit

My photograph entitled Pause, Tuileries Garden, Paris, France, 2011 (from the series Yours Mine Le Nôtre’s), has received Juror Award of Merit in the International Fine Art Photography Competition: Grand Prix de la Découverte. Taken from the Orangerie Museum, overlooking the Octagonal Basin, this image depicts a solitary sleeper in the late morning sun on a reclining green garden chair. Ten pigeons, siting in a row along the balustrade just behind him, are also taking in the sun.  This moment is suspended in time, hence the title “Pause”.
