Six years old and going strong, Circulation(s) is a Paris-based festival that showcases young and emerging photographic talents from across Europe. In the weeks leading up to this year’s edition, we will be sharing some of our favorite photographers from the program. We’re also excited to be working with Circulation(s) as an official media partner. Look out for more information regarding the festival in the weeks to come!

Five years ago, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor in a location which made treatment difficult.

After a period of being able to live with it fairly easily, a few months ago I fainted in the street. This put me in touch with a strong sense of fragility. A fear of calling attention to myself in an unpleasant situation in public meant that I was very anxious about going out and more and more frequently sought refuge in my house.

“Home” is an intimate diary of this experience of confinement, a product of the impulse to continue taking photographs during a stressful time. It is also a way to make visible a reality that, from the beginning, has been hard to share, and that has to do with the way my life has been affected by a chronic disease with which I am trying to learn to live.
