I will show my last multimedia photo essay
"Words are flying away: the exiled memory" (12 minutes)

Soon after Andrée moved to live in a residency for elderly people, the doctors realized she had Alzheimer's disease.
I accompanied her in her daily life during five years, to make the portrait of an elderly person suffering from Alzheimer, a sad disease that becomes a metaphor for the aging: Andrée's memories were wiped away prematurely, and by the same the history of her family. My Family.
A chapter in a family vanishes while the historical memories of the last Pieds-Noirs from Algeria disappear.

Photo . Portrait of Pinar Selek . Part ll

February 2013 . Berlin
A few years ago I made a portrait of the turkish sociologist, feminist and author Pinar Selek on assignment for the german newspaper taz.

Pinar Selek is now living in France writing her doctoral thesis and she has just been sentenced for life by the Istanbul High Criminal Court. The charge is for "terrorism", in spite of her work, which is engaged on the rights of vulnerable communities in Turkey.

Now that she is generating a lot of public and media interest, my picture of her, once published on, is getting a lot of attention as well and has been copied in a lot of newspapers and blogs in Germany, France, Switzerland and of course in Turkey. Not always in the interest of Pinar Selek, the taz or myself. And seldom with permission...

See exemples of the different websites below.
