Antoine Seiter - J & A
French edition
By photographing his sister Julia's adolescence over a decade, Antoine Seiter bears witness to the language that a face can develop by constantly raising the question of portraiture.

Parallel to the photographic work in the theme of the passage to adulthood, the story is a homosexual love story that brings emancipation.
