Jardin Fleuri (2012)

Jardin Fleuri is a series representing the different ages of a woman. It started from the photo "Blooming Garden" representing a mother. This series is all about harmony with our bodies and our majestic nature. The natural miracle of life, age and time. I feel blessed to be a woman and truly wanted to represent how I personally felt when a seed grew in my body. Generally, it's an homage to all women and nature incredibleness.

This is not a generalization of womanhood saying that we are created to follow a specific line and end up making babies. We must not always go through all the stages ; obviously. Fortunately, most of us have the incredible power of hosting a life in our womb and even though women may choose to not have children, I don't think we should deny it by not talking about it. Whatever are their choices of life and personal stories, all women are wonderful!
