"No one can understand our love. The others are too perfect to love. We will never be like everyone else because we are sensitive enough to see it, the beauty. Beauty in everything, everywhere. At every moment, it arises, it overwhelms us."Hugo to Emma / Facebook.

Marion Poussier about her exhibition in Deauville Love :

"You have to look to see a teenager in this city not really cut out for them. It is at the end of high school that they can be found in clusters. There they wait for their bus, their parents. They return home and move away from Deauville 5, 10, 15 or 20 km in the countryside. Scattered, they stay connected. Hundreds of sms, hours on facebook. In their words we hear their speaking colleagues. Of love. A complex web of intertwined threads connects them to each other, invisible to the adult eye. It takes over from the moments when these links become tangible, when the eyes meet and the skins are uncovered. It's fragile. And it's strong.
Provided with a large format photographic camera, I went to meet teenagers in Deauville and became interested in the enigmatic question of love at this age. I would like to be in love, you would like to be in love, we would like to be in love.
LOVE is a plunge into the hearts of adolescents."
