My photographic practice consists of creating links between the photographed and the spectator, seeking to bring closer realities that re-found the edges, the margins of the political, that extend the limits of binary thought. Part of my digital process is rooted in the desire to create images that touch the real. I embrace stories of "the crossing" (transgender people, refugees, migrants, LGTBIQ +), that interpellate and open new questions. I celebrate "the word" as an element that enriches the work, as well as the use of photographic archives to tell stories. I don't believe in people portrayed as passive subjects.
Concepts such as identity, gender, diversity, childhood, family and and equality. In doing so, I challenge the dominant ideologies that shape these social constructions. My different projects are linked to human rights in favor of diversity.
I am not a women documentary photographer, or photojournalist, or a conceptual. I am a "cross" between all of them.
