Open call : cultural diversity mothers and daughters - Ville St-Laurent

Open call : cultural diversity mothers and daughters  - Ville St-Laurent


The photographer Sarah Seené is looking for women and girls participants of the various cultural communities of Ville Saint-Laurent for a photographic project celebrating cultural diversity women and girls in the borough. The artist is particularly interested in shooting mothers and daughters together (and possibly grandmothers). This project will be exhibited at Bibliothèque du Boisé in July 2019.


The shooting will require only about 15 minutes in a place chosen by the participant(s).

Sarah Seené is a photographer and visual artist who works with analog media (35mm, 120mm, Polaroid, Super8). Bringing together mainly portraits, her images focus on faces, bodies and the human being. The photographic material offered by the film has allowed her to develop a singular poetry, a dream that animates each of her series. Her work is inspired by the concept of resilience spoken by the French neuropsychiatrist Boris Cyrulnik. For several years, she carried out an introspective research aimed at grasping the contours of her own history and her capacity to be reborn from her ashes, through the exploration of the post-traumatic shock syndrome linked to several personal dramas. Resilience is particularly central in her series of self-portraits or in a recent film Super-8 film co-directed with experimental filmmaker Guillaume Vallée, Il fait gris dans ta tête, tout à coup*,  in which she linked her visual practice to that of writing. (* Grand Prix of Rendez-vous Vidéo-Poésie de Montréal in 2018)

From now on, it's the resilience of others that holds a central place in her work, particularly at the heart of the Fovea project, halfway between photography and poetic descriptions in Braille. Fovea won le Coeur du public at Prix Mentor in Zoom Festival Saguenay, won le Prix du public at SOIR festival in Montréal, caught the attention of Fidal Photo, a documentary photo award, and was shortlisted by the IWPA (International Women Photographers Award).
