Distant Intimacy

Regular price

A reflection on the relationship between the photographed body and the photographing body, Marie Déhé’s new book is a singular project around intimacy initiated in 2020 by the French photographer. Distant intimacy unveils on 300 pages a series of images of 28 women photographed through screens on online platforms.

 

“I want to photograph you from distance. On your phone/laptop, you will turn the video call on and I will be there with my camera. In your kitchen, on your bed, at your window—wherever you like.

I would like you to be naked or as undressed as you’re comfortable to be. For the first picture, I will be dressed; for the next one, I will be naked; for the last one you will be dressed and I will still be naked. I will sometimes appear on the final picture, sometimes not fully and sometimes not at all.

Get comfortable, it’s about getting closer from distance, sharing an intimate moment in a safe environment.

I know I’m asking a lot, but please, trust me, we’re in this together.” 

(Marie Déhé)
