"Out of this simple, yet vertiginous process, two new movements ensue. Through the sequentiality inherent in the book — one page after another — the artist emphasizes the temporal aspect not just of the gesture of photography but also of the act of contemplation. She gives several moments to a single image." From the text of C Klonowski, written for the exhibition at Frac Lorraine, Metz, FR
