How a « pin-up girl » should be defined ?
As a healthy-looking girl blessed with a radiant body.
Therefore in the masculine its equivalent would be a superhero.
Except that superheroes are superpowered and have an identity.
Pin-up girls don’t have any name and do not seem superpowered.
They rather look like super victims :
Victim of the wind blowing their dress, victim of a pot plant on which their skirt get caught, victim of the hot water that shrinks their pullover, victim of a puddle splash, victim of a sunbeam burning and staining their skin…
When Jean-Marie and Marie-Laure Vivès (Manjari and Partners) offered me the opportunity to take part in a thematic exhibition « Pin-up » I did not want to contribute to an erotization more or less sadistic.
I preferred to imagine a pin-up as a fantasy, a ghostly vision, an invention the more or less sweetened taste of which would come from all that we put around. #photographicseries#sugarsugar#fruitphotography#pinupgram#nudedrawing
