Floriane de Lassée’s series “How much can you carry?” in Paris

This fall, you will be able to see work from Floriane de Lassée’s series “How much can you carry?” on view in Paris as part of les Rencontres Photo du 10e arrondissement from October 14 through November 16, 2019. Her work will be exhibited along the Canal Saint Martin on the grids of the Jardin Villemin.

The series “How much can you carry?” is based on Floriane‘s fascination for the long lines of walkers, carrying diverse and bulky objects all along African roads. Started in 2012 in Ethiopia, and still on-going, this series spread out to 4 continents, covering around 15 regions to this day, within 7 countries (Ethiopia, Rwanda, Nepal, India, Japan, Indonesia, Bolivia, Brazil), and more to come. Through these simple and authentic photographs, she proposes to stage each person with what counts most to her/him.
