Dare to be different!

Dare to be different, and make your difference a strength!

Let’s take another look at invisible diseases, disability, and imperceptible differences

Personal photographic project on difference –  Portraits of 8 amazing women

Why did I want to do this project, especially on the invisible difference?

It has always been important to me to raise awareness on these important and delicate subjects, which are sometimes forgotten in society.

Surrounded by friends and acquaintances with invisible disabilities, I was able to realize how difficult it can be on a daily basis.

Aware that there are also invisible differences which are neither illnesses nor handicaps, but which can be very disabling on a daily basis, I decided to open this project to differences.

This project made sense to me, because I wanted to show that difference is a source of wealth for everyone. This is also the message that the participants also wanted to show.

Dare to be different, and make your difference your strength!

I started this personal photographic project in October 2021, to finish it in April 2022. All the sessions were carried out in Toulouse, because I wanted to highlight these pretty portraits thanks to emblematic places of our beautiful pink city.

The photos were taken in the alleys of Toulouse, along the Canal du Midi, and in Toulouse gardens.

A big thank you to all these incredible women who have given me absolute confidence to carry out this project.

Thanks to Aurélie, Marianne, Véronique, Béatrice, Eva, Nicole, Daphné, Audrey.

“Having an invisible disability allowed me to assert myself, but for other professional and human abilities. At first I was ashamed. Now I tell myself that no one is perfect and that living with it is not a defect but a strength.  Not hearing well forces me to approach people. 
I thank my Multiple Sclerosis because without it, I would not be where I am and above all I would not be who I am today. She became my strength and my example. She is part of my life but I have never identified with her. I never felt victimized by my disability.
