Interested in the complexities and plurality of others, Annie France Noël explores softness through portraiture. She explores concepts of vulnerability and identity with the help of her subjects (seen more-so as collaborators). Recognizing the camera as a tool of appropriation, she attempts to dismantle the power dynamics surrounding picture-taking.
The process and the photographic object undergo a systematic deconstruction in order to break with the rigidity of social structures and embrace a redefined, reaffirmed and fluid expression of identity.
Annie France Noël is an artist and a photographer hailing from Caraquet (NB).
