La sĂ©rie Â« Dog's identity Â» est le dĂ©but d'une phase de travail qui interroge sur la place de l'animal (ici le chien) dans notre sociĂ©tĂ©.
"Dog's identity" questions the place of the animal (here the dog) in our society. According to some beliefs - American Indians, for exemple - photography steals souls. I didn't want it, but I hoped to reveal in the dog's eyes their soul. Since 2015, the civil code describes the dog as "a sensitive being". Finally, we begin to free from the thought of Descartes who considered the animal as a machine. But dog is always in the civil code a legal "thing". His intrinsic value is recognized (his sensibility), but he keeps a commercial and patrimonial value. Every dog has his own personality, forged by his education and his environment. Dog absorbs everything: the aggressiveness, the agitation, the stress or the calm and the serenity of his master. "Dog's identity" isn't a series of portraits of pretty dogs. It requires to be carried by the emotion. By choosing a unique decor and a tight framing for each of my models, I wanted to reveal their personality and take them out of a simple role of pet.
