My book, finally in my hands :)

With the help of 60 pre-orders, I have been able to edit my first book with two strong series: ‘Onnagata & Philoctète’.

‘Onnagata’ is the most recent of the series I have been working on (2012). Registering in an aesthetic very close to Fashion, it represents three transgender dressed in traditional kimonos playing the roles of “onnagatas”: transvestite comedians of the traditional kabuki (XVIth century). I am looking, in that sense, to explore the question of genders and their representation. Thanks to the review in Lash, the series spread into numerous French, American, Chinese and Japanese blogs.

With 'Philoctète’ (2006-2008), I am investigating the question of the representation of pain by photographing corporal performances, best known under the name of “suspensions”. The question is less about taking sides on the well-founded motives of these ancestral tribal practices, that were re-introduced by accident by the movement of the “modern primitives” in the sixties, but more to interrogate oneself on the psychology of the spectator.

‘Onnagata’ & ‘Philoctète’ were exhibited last January, in the galery Edition Photo in Paris, and in June during the Nuit de l'Art in the Palais de Tokyo.

The book was released in June 2013, and you can buy it online at the address:
