The figures progress wild in the nest. Like ghosts that do not want especially tobe seen, theyhave been caught gravitating around this singularand playful environment. Hidden behind some subterfuges or facing the camera, they furtively share a part of intimacy with Her who knows how to glean the natural essence in theirmoves. Plainly shot, they pose spontaneously with a hint of vehemence and depth. Under a coloured and a bold aesthetics, these popular and sometimes exotic portraits unveil the clandestine duality concealed in the gestures and faces. « All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. » saysSchopenhauer. The photographs appear to Herself that way : self-evident.
