ENFANTILLAGE(S) is a series of photographic diptyches addressing the relationships between Humans and Animals. The photographic work that juxtaposes photos of children playing with cuddly toys “animals” with photos of real dead animals by the roadside wants to be deliberately provocative. The main idea was to stress how the construction of our relationship with animals, which is embedded in affective links symbolized by the cuddly toy from early childhood, skews our knowledge of real animals that surround us. Our empathy for the pet, the companion tends to erase any thoughtfulness towards the wild animal whose name and even the very existence are often ignored.

The objective of my project is to expose this series of 10 diptyches in different places, starting with Montpellier city. The collected funds will thus serve the editing and framing of the photos (format 30 x 90). I have been working on this series for more than a year now and I really care about exposing it soon.

    Thanks for providing a link..the video was interesting to see the dual images in the context of your project. It is indeed an thought provoking series and I hope you raise the funds necessary. I would love the see the dual images here on JPG.
