Présentation

The codes of fashion photography are here applied to a particular situation. The clothes made by the designers from the HEAD (Geneva) are worn by the inmates of a women’s prison. They have free reign as to how to model the clothes, to choose their gestures and pose, make up and hair-style, as well as the music that accompanies the experience. In this way, Matei Fosceneanu hopes to combat the conditions of imprisonment that, slowly but surely, sap the self-esteem and social identity of the detainees.
