  • Entre Quatre Murs I, Germany

    Focusing on the construction of female identity, Entre Quatre Murs, Berlin is a series of compositions of women and space.  This sequence of three-dimensional portraits transparentizes the female body, as Nathalie interweaves her subjects with their surroundings until the distinction between self and environment all but disappears.  Each scene seems a microcosmic snapshot of the mind, as the bounds between these women's external world and interior self dissolves.
    Each image is a composite, the elements separated and printed on layers of transparent orthochromatic film.  By superimposing these layers, the image is reconstituted 3-dimensionally.
