It’s an urgent need of proof that makes me go in front of the camera :
Proof of my existence, my commitment and my persistence, as for me, being a young woman and a young artist is synonymous with a search for recognition. In this series, I become my own witness, able to position myself in our society. Photography appears to me as the medium of reference for the representation of this crude and direct truth. The photographic act that I accomplish, in forcing me to rush in front of the camera to capture a moment, often in presence of an audience, intends to make visible the complexity of this crucial moment when we decide to show ourselves.
