in BACHELOR PHOTOGRAPHY

by Emma Panchot


The “Nif” series of photographs results from my meeting with young Mediterranean men in Marseille. The city facing the African continent has always been a port to exiles. In the “Nif” portraits the experience of these young men is transposed into a fictional universe that aims to explore, through my fascination for the male body, meridional identity constructions of masculinity. My images have been hybridized by dressing these sunbathed bodies with clothes, plants and trash to give them a feminine polarity.
