Love itself must fall asleep / In the dark

Lynda Laird graduated from the London College of Communication with a Masters in Photojournalism and Photo Documentary in 2016. Passionate about history, she pursues long-term projects, requiring intense moments of research and preparation. Originally from an island in Scotland, she has a real attraction for water, the common thread of her personal projects.
Lynda Laird also works with video, sound, archives, collecting objects and testimonies. The presentation of his work thus gives rise to complete experiences, immersive and multi-sensory installations.

Lynda Laird is the Winner of the Louis Roederer Foundation Prize at the 2016 Festival Planche (s) Contact.

She therefore produced two series of works for the City. Lynda Laird approached Deauville through the prism of its history. After the memory of the establishment of the Franciscans in 2016, she became more interested in the sensitive imprints of the Second World War that still survive in our daily environment, our buildings, and our minds.
