« Rayon Vert » takes its title from the optical phenomenon and the 1986 Eric Rohmer film, both of which are reflected in the project’s approach to portraiture. The work can be seen as a continuation of the tradition focussing on the vital relationship between artist and model. The images feature a circle of acquaintances and respond to existing, and too often clichéd, representation of femininity. The images are based on fact and are devoid of narrative and a patriarchal vision of beauty.
