Himbas ~ Namibia 2019

This photography for me is a revelation of the whole paradox of our eternal quest for human and cultural identity.

Shooting in the photographic chamber – Pigmentaire print 100x75cm ~ Namibia 2019

This image is the story of an improbable meeting, the idea of a photography that I expose to them without really believing, of my surprise at what they accept and take the time to pose in front of my dark chamber.

How do you manage to exist in this changing world, not to change and give up your identity? To this question, which is certainly naive on my part, she simply answers me: Because we are Himbas!
