La leçon de musique - The music lesson
This series is a self portrait with my twin daughters. I spent 8 years sitting next to them while they were studiying their instrument. They hated it, they hated me and i felt trapped in this "bad cop" role. One day, i asked them to do a self portrait series with me and a piano, to be able to step back together and have sense of humor about our whole mother/daughters game. I needed to show them i was not only the stiff and stubborn mother i sometimes had to be with them. We improvised what a free "piano lesson" would be. The teacher was crazier than the students. The mother was freer than the daughters.
Today they are musicians.
