Identity at Stake
Identity At Stake2001-, Tokyo, Tunis, Sfax, Paris, Perugia
Identity at Stake consists of meeting a woman, taking photographs of her in her own environment and then photographing myself in that woman’s environment, adopting her gestures and her way of dressing.
In this act of substitution, I take the risk of coming as close as possible to the identity of the other. Through this smooth metamorphosis, I combine the two identities at stake… Even though it is a resemblance that seems to be sought during the photographic session, in the end it is the difference that is revealed.
