Deauville under fire

"With the emergence of globalization, Deauville has become an international tourist destination that attracts celebrities. In this context, the paparazzi is positioned as the person responsible for the transition between these private lives and their public image. My goal is to work from their missed "shots", those where the lens is missed, the subject is subtracted, and which allow us to go further into their aesthetic. Like a clumsy paparazzi who adjusts his camera and is about to shoot without realizing that onlookers are obstructing his lens. Thus, and from these contact sheets, we can rethink Deauville through the quest, the density and the questioning of the construction of identity in the public sphere."
