Photographer: Manon Boyer

This series questions the limits defined by society on the identification of a body and its classification. Here, the different images represent multiple bodies, without sexual attribution; they are nobody, and are everybody at the same time.

Through this approach, I seek to highlight the carnal details of these bodies as they transform, and to confront these different individualities forced to cohabit. My interest through photography is to focus on this body that changes and takes on new contours. The body becomes motifs and colours that are repeated in new compositions. Autonomous, it suggests the search for a marker of femininity or masculinity, although the photographic intention was to give it a certain neutrality.

I would like to propose a new look at this same body which is continually metamorphosing and splitting. A formal and non-identity-based look, which does not aim at recognition but at the experience of a new representation. The photographed body plays with the balance between gender and between the human and the inhuman. The multiple personalities that are suggested are both frozen by the shot and in perpetual metamorphosis. This shift, this rupture, is the major point of this series.

Having received a diploma in 2014, specialising in photography, at the Superior School of Art and Design in Marseille, I then worked with Jasper White in London and led the «Eiffel Tower project, before entering the National Superior School of photography in Arles, in 2015, where I obtained a Masters in « research and creation» with special mention from the Jury.

Following several collective exhibitions, my work was included in 2016 by «Voies Off» at the Rencontres de la Photographie («Photographic Meetings»).

In 2017 I won the prize for «1st photo edition» organised by Tribew and Fisheye with my series «Traversée» («Crossing»). I was selected by Leica to cover the first week of Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles,
and to exhibit my work daily in the «Leica Room» during the show. I was also involved with the «coups de cœur» («favourites») of the ANI at the «Visa for image» festival in Perpignan (2017 and 2018). I then
travelled to America with a video maker visiting some States, as part of a new personal project, which was in turn the subject of a Carte Blanche by Leica.

In 2018 I have also done several collective exhibitions as well as the new Carte Blanche with Leica. Also I
won a competition with Accorhotel, which allows me to repr
