Love itself must fall asleep / In the dark

Lynda Laird graduated from the London College of Communication's Photojournalism and Photo-documentary Masters 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, which is a common thread in her personal projects.
Lynda Laird also works with video, sound, archives, object collection and testimonies. The presentation of her 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 Planche(s) Contact Festival.

She has therefore produced two series of works for the town. Lynda Laird has approached Deauville through the prism of its history. After the memory of Les Franciscaines' settlement in 2016, she was more specifically interested in the sensitive imprints of the Second World War that still survive in our daily environment, our buildings, and our minds.
