Silent Figures explores the private life of couples, through their often silent or unvoiced dynamics. I am interested in the complex contradictions that exist between the desire to share, the need to be in a couple and, by contrast, the lack of emotion, sense of estrangement and of deep solitude that can simultaneously ensue. The project is made by
working with real couples, merging their reality with staged scenes as a photographic performance of identity.
