Plauchut Virginie was born in 1976. She began self-taught photography in 2009. Over time, the themes become clearer. Her approach is more narrative, the human is omnipresent, visible or not. Since 2011 she has developed a work or photography and writing meet and revolve around notions of intimacy, introspection, loneliness or even closed. Each series is a narrative dimension, Virginie tells us and tells stories.

You shoot film because…

I love the smell of film negative or instantaneous. It’s the same, I love and I need this report to matter what something tangible with this element of the unknown.

Your photography feels like…

In this work, I discuss the absence of the child who is no longer one. It is then more narrative or autobiography but individual plots made ​​available and who speaks more than one thing: change, transition: the definition of a before and an after, a time that you want to suspend, something intangible, the intimacy of a memory. The images were taken with a Fuji Instax. This choice reflects the desire for a form of letting go but also the difficulty of a clear statement of feelings.
