Tainted innocence is a hymn to my sister Chloé.
Portraying a period of uncertainty, the delicate crossing between a child and a young woman.
Seventeen, the age where we battle through the quest for the discovery of our identities.
Seeking for the right to gain possession of our bodies.
Whilst searching for ground from which she can take flight, Chloé re-delves into the absence of a father and the lack of a family. Giving our mother an impression of déjà vu, as reflected in Chloé she sees her own abandonment.
Chloé and our mother have always held a complex, fusional and exclusive relationship. A binding tie unites them but this doesn’t go without clashes. Taken in a period of emotional violence, arguments and reconciliations set their daily rhythm.
Since having crossed the Channel my voice has found its echo. These photographs represent a few pieces from a complicated jigsaw.
