Colette Pourroy - Red Was Her Color
|Publisher||Andre Frere Editions|
Photographer Colette Pourroy’s visual universe is fuelled by very personal emotions. A portrait of a young woman and the staged appearances of her counterpart reinforce the sensuality, strength, and femininity of the protagonist of this story about a mother who loved the colour red. Her daughter has chosen to translate this into black and white. From the outset, the tone alludes to a love story overshadowed by a dark omen. Lightness of emotion is muted by the appearance of closed doors and closed bodies. Her inner journey overturns memories and breaks taboos, but also repairs. As it progresses, her singular and haunting approach succeeds in making the invisible visible.
