About                                  EN/FR


Maroussia Prignot (BE, 1981) and Valerio Alvarez (BE, 1976) have been doing a collective photographic work since 2015. Their collaboration began on the issue of migration, and more specifically the way in which migrants are received within the Belgian state. Considering that any image is a construction, and not a faithful reproduction of the "reality", their approach is integrative, setting up workshops, joint creation actions, trying to collaborate with those who make their photographs. Working in the field of psychiatry, Maroussia and Valerio are sensitive to the tiny variations that make it possible to meet the other in its difference, focusing on the strengths of each of us.
