Synopsis: From 2013 to 2014, I lived among English thoroughbreds at Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky, USA. At this farm, the focus is on the horses’ physical and mental well-being, which are essential for their athletic performance. The outstanding professionalism and caring attitude of the handlers toward the horses made this experience in the heart of Bluegrass Country an unforgettable one for me.

ARTISTIC APPROACH
Taking a photograph is a loving gesture. It triggers a subtle adjustment of rhythms and creates a sensory intimacy with the horse. In my video work, I depict sequences from the horse’s life.

Director's Bio

My professional career began with the study of preverbal interactions between infants and adults at the Collège de France in Paris. In my work today, I continue to draw on this experience based on observation in order to convey the emotional power of horses.

From 2009 to 2013, I photographed Lusitano horses, approaching them in a way that was in tune with their lives, remaining as unobtrusive as possible. I paid close attention to their daily activities and the constant mutual adjustments observed between the horse and horseman. I tried to translate through images the sense of wonder and unsettling emotions they evoke in me.

From 2013 to 2014, I lived among English thoroughbreds at Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky, USA. At this farm, the focus is on the horses’ physical and mental well-being, which are essential for their athletic performance.
