Available for young girls, the L-Trichet school is located in Tetraultville, Montreal East. Fifteen students aged about 13 years in grades 1, answer to two questions: what would be the most beautiful photography of the world? What would be the ugliest photography of the world?
These black and white video portraits filmed in static shot offer the opportunity to create a work in which the starkness of the image gives way to the teenagers word. Between silences and hesitations, sometimes conventional, sometimes surprising, some answers emerge. Referring us to this age between childhood and adolescence, the reflexions about the beautiful and the ugly lead us to the question of taste, constantly redefined.
