Work in progress
"Les insouciants" (the reckless) is a documentary project about young adults who feel different, who don't fit in the standards of society, who try to escape the established norms. Despite facing difficulties, all of them had the courage to embrace who they are. For 5 years, I’ve been taking photos of friends, acquaintances and people I’ve met through the project itself within the queer community and giving them visibility. My intention was to show them as they really are, in a space forged in their image, where they can express themselves freely. This work is a tribute to youth, to individuality, to diversity and to difference. It also a project about love, self-love and self-acceptance. In a world torn apart, where inequality and discrimination remains, I felt it was vital to show a youth beyond the divisions that are constantly imposed. With this series, my objective is to invite my audience to experience the beauty, warmth and authenticity of my encounters.
