Marie AYNAUD - 'REINE & JOELLE', 2017.
"Reine and Joelle welcomed me to her home. These two sisters are fusional, they do everything together, never leave each other. In this picture, it's 7am, and Joelle is removing sister's eyebrows. Their complicity fascinates me."

Olivia Fernandez - 'Alone, In Silence', 2017.
"Alone, in silence is a project for my brother Guillaume, who died in an accident when he was 22. The death of an elderly person is painful, the death of a younger one is unbearable. Alone, I drove across Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana and Idaho. In the silence and vast emptiness of those landscapes, I saw manifestations of the sadness and solitude I feel inside. It is easier to be alone and sad under the protection of darkness, so I turn the photos from day to night in the darkroom. The night acts as a space and a state of mind."

Rob brown - 'Reflections' 2018.
"Its like a bad dream, that all of this has happened to our family..." This is a shot from filming of my docudrama feature 'Don't Talk About Me' which is an intimate family portrait of tragedy, humour and warmth as a woman’s refusal to accept her bipolar diagnosis impacts those closest to her. The film tells a story of conflicting narratives as my family reflects upon troubling events from our past. As Director, I am confronting my estranged bipolar mother with my memories of our turbulent and neglectful home life, when she continually refused to accept her bipolar diagnosis. I have written a feature film script from these memories, which my family have read aloud. The way that each of my family members remember the same events is often different. These conflicting memories from the family will narrate a drama based feature film that will explore the dangers of not confronting a bipolar diagnosis."

RITA SILVA -'THE ACCEPTANCE OF DEATH', 2017.
"Visual rehearsal about a body simultaneously hidden and exposed in decay and in relation with elements of nature. The awareness of death is the starting point for the reflection on birth and the meaning of life. In a never-ending cycle, from creation to disappearance, this body, carrier of emotions and memories, will not resist the degradation of the matter in which it resides, returning to the soil from which it sprouted."

Sarah Mei Herman - 'Linli and Naomi', 2015.
"Amongst the young people I met, I photographed several girls who were in a lesbian relationship. In China gay-sexuality is not illegal anymore but it’s still a great taboo. I was surprised about their openness to me, since in most cases being gay is an absolute secret, which the family will not accept. The girl on the left is Linli, photographed with her first girlfriend just after they got together. Linli is one of the young women with whom I built up a friendship. Every time I return to Xiamen I photograph her. Linli is now engaged to a young man."
