Il est une autre


“I like to make myself beautiful” the sentence that gives birth to my project and that awakened my vulnerabilities when faced with the weight of conventions.

These images delve into the discovery of the self and the other. Pushing oneself to see past the masculin archetype, trying to unlearn an entire education centered around gender.

I have the desire to discover another, that I find beautiful in all their masculinity but I also want to discover how they can be beautiful in their femininity.

My partner, neither situates himself in fancy dress nor in cross-dressing, but in a blurred in-between, in the questioning of pre-established normes.

What is a masculin boy, what is a feminine girl ?
Why should we chose between black and white? Why couldn’t grey exist in all its nuances.
