In Womb the French photographer Lucile Boiron investigates and contemplates on the true nature of body.
In the words of François Cheval: Bodies, to which we no longer pay attention, here remind us of their true condition: territories where states are shared, yet unique, bearing traces of stories that the skin alone is able to understand. Entrails, raw meat, decomposing fruit: these images haunt and revolt us. There is an ambivalent seduction to ugliness and repulsion, arousing our desire for the animality and the morbid pleasure found in contemplation.
Lucile Boiron lives and works in Paris. She graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière and won a Libraryman Award in 2019, which allowed her to publish her first book Womb.
