This work is based on my memories of summer holiday camps. These camps were a sort of interlude in my everyday life. No one knew me so I could play any role I wanted. The notions of time (which was suspended) and space (which was closed) took on a different dimension. The question of how one appears to others, of representation, which is so important during adolescence is at the heart of this project.

Although these pictures show the theatrical aspects of adolescent attitudes, they also reveal the teenagers’ fragile, vulnerable personalities.
