While photography’s first property is to place us as observers of the outside world, it can also encourage us to look inside. By means of thorough investigations, today’s artists question their roots, their past and their cultures. The mystery inherent in any family history is often the starting point for these questions. A certain nostalgia related to childhood or youth is also the basis of some topics. Far from being an act of egocentrism, this is about documenting so as to better understand one’s circumstances and oneself.
Driven by a true constructive purpose, each artist opens and reveals part of their history through pictures. Sensitive and charged with their experiences, they use their photography to complete their introspection and expose the result of their research to others.
