Joëlle Wider Greset
New York, Pride March
ABOUT THE ARTWORK: After my theatrical experiences, my work turned to research on the difficulty of self-representation within the community through visuals and sounds projects, but also and through street photography. By following various manifestations and acts of social struggle, attempting a more independent and personal point of view on the human implication in progress. Observing the intimate experience and palpable vulnerability of participants as individuals through a collective movement. This moment of the Pride March in New York in June 2018 is particular for me, since my digital camera was broken. So I used an old analog film camera 35mm, which contained only a film of 36 images for 6 hours of march.
