“Artek, Summer in Crimea” (Editions La Martinière) captures collective changes in Russian society which is in upheaval, as well as the transformations of the young people in this old pioneer camp.
“Loulan Beauty” (Editions du Chêne) superimposes two visions of Central Asia: the end of the Soviet model and the old scenes that remain, immemorial, carried by young modern women who resemble Loulan Beauty, but 4,000 years older.
With “Sasha”(Editions Le Caillou Bleu), a piece of work about the loss of a childhood, these rituals are set in place, these moments of suspension, the intersection of all possibilities.
“L’Homme Nouveau” (Filigranes Editions).
