She joins Nature Humaine residency 2012-2013: the result is published by Filigranes Editions and Nature Humaine in May 2013. Her work has been exposed in many solo and group exhibitions and published in several catalogues.
In her statement she has declared:
I’m a photographer with a preference for square format (2¼x2¼ inches colour film), for long I concentrated on interiors characterized by strong stories happening there. I perceived my photos as portraits without people: the human presence remained and the trace of it was the main focus of my research. I then started to work in panoramic medium format, keeping colour film as my technical choice and including portraits. I added sound and video works to create multimedia installations. Within different situations, in my series things are just about to disappear. Changes just happened or will happen soon. The heritage from the past is central. Banal gestures, everyday sounds and scenes, one family history…. small stories to evoke deep feelings. Time and understanding are essential to accomplish my work that is usually the result of a longlasting project. Over the past few years, audio and video work took an important role in my practice while book making and installations became the goals of all process.
