Half man half beast
Invited to look at Deauville, Isabel Muñoz chose to work around the horse and the sea. The raised musculature, the short coat, the protruding eye, the horse has always intrigued the photographer who already sees the results of this flames. In the continuity of its research on the body and movement, this new series will continue its quest for understanding the world. After the primates (series Family Album, 2016), this approach to the horse world will highlight our relationship with animals and nature. On the beach, in the water, Isabel Muñoz hopes to concentrate in her photography a form of fusion between man, horse, water. Through a set of twenty prints, she tells us from tight shots, gestures captured or guessed her Deauvillaise experience.

I like to work on the relationship with the skin and more generally with organic matter. The skin represents the limit of our physical body, as the coast represents the limit of the earth. In his work Le Moi Peau, Didier Anzieu puts forward the hypothesis of a double-faced skin: an internal face which contains, limits; an external face which perceives, protects.
Resulting from the erosion of the limestone cliffs, Deauville is characterized by a long sandy beach. During this residency I would like to work on the relationship between sand and skin, and use the sand material as a narrative support.
Working with sand has, in essence, an ephemeral dimension. I like the idea that the act of creation is linked to the present moment. Life is movement. Creating works that are not intended to be permanent makes sense to me: they are part of the essence of what we are, they reflect our condition. A whole part of this work will focus on our ephemeral dimension and in contrast on our relationship to eternity. "

The Deauville Chatonnière
In Deauville, a pedestrian crossing connects the nursery for toddlers and the home for the elderly. One accommodates people aged 60 to 95. The other accommodates 25 children from 3 months to 3 years old. These two places of life face each other and organize their days with sequences and similar meetings: morning games, lunch, nap and afternoon games while waiting for tea time and return, at the end afternoon, at home. Liz Hingley, was seduced by this proximity and this neighborhood, specific to Deauville, and by this symbolism of a life course that begins and ends from one sidewalk to another. For Planche (s) Contact 2018, she wishes to immerse herself for several days in these two universes and to create moments of meetings and exchanges between these two generations. Beyond an anthropological or social approach, it is above all a question of revealing in photography, in their truths or their spontaneities, the echoes that these two segments of life make.

Wind of Dust

"I believe that the main thing in an exhaustive photographic narrative, less superficial and human, resides in the personal gaze that we breathe in. Thus, in Deauville, I wish to walk the streets instinctively, rather than with a goal I do not want to photograph the City in a methodical way because, on the contrary, I want to convey a more sincere feeling of my experience and the time that I could spend there.
I want to photograph the city and its inhabitants (at home, at work, in the street) but also the beach and its lights, the streets and the shadows, the proximity and the distance, my meetings and my adventures, the history of this City and the footprints of the people who passed there, its little secrets and mysteries, in its life in broad daylight as in its smallest corners. "
