Iconic's objects from the covid-19 shortage
During the beginning of the first lockdown in France it appears that we were facing a major shortage. Basic medic's protection equipment latex gloves, covid tests,
thermometer, hydroalcoholic gel container and even the gel by itself. And later while people in my city were trying to sew mask and blouse, a lackness of elastic strings. I decided to collect the item that people made to palliate those needs. Those objects become for me the symbols of this Historic moment, of this sudden momentum of solidarity. I bring them in my photo studio and shoot them as iconic objects in honor of this volunteers that work so hard to help our medics to work against the covid-19. 

Recyled textile became masks, Garbage bags became blouse, Sewing machine and 3d printers became massive weapon to fight for the citizen of my small city.
