Lucile Boiron is a French photographer whose work is largely inspired by the human body. She’s particularly interested in moments of metamorphosis, reminding her viewers of their own fallible condition. In 2019, she won the Libraryman Award for her project “Womb,” which was later published as a book. The series we featured, “Mise en pièce,” contrasts images shot in a cosmetic surgery theater with self-portraits Lucile took during lockdown in 2020. The close up, fragmented nature of the images erase any notion of individuality, resulting in a series that’s both liberating and grotesque—a simple reminder of what it is to be alive.
