Extimite is a collective exhibition shown at Nest gallery, Geneva, from september 17 to 24, 2010.

Extimite means the part of our intimacy we are ready to show to others. In today's world, a part of our intimate life is visible through social networks, webcams or cctv. A kind of industrial voyeurism. 

My approach has consisted in shooting these nine young women making-up on the street. At first, these situations could be seen as trivial, but something else rare is proposed: the time these women take to doll up, alone.

Each woman is looking at something offscreen that may penetrate her intimacy. Combative, surprised, suspicious or sometimes resigned, these women confront this with their own personality. By looking at these portraits, the spectator eroticizes them by possessing in his own way a part of these women's intimacy.
