Shaken by her mother’s illness, Charlotte Mano has initiated a photographic series staging their daily life into micro-fictions. A response to transform these moments together and celebrate their complicity when the mother becomes little by little the operator of the stagings imagined by the photographer. The two women completely unveil themselves and share in this way the universal strength of mother-daughter relationship.

This series has received the Prix HSBC pour la Photographie 2020 and, gathered in this first monograph, it questions the power of the image but also its own limits in a wacky, contemplative and unsettling atmosphere.
