"The smell of the night was that of jasmine" is a continuation of FLORE's series, "Lointains souvenirs" (Éditions Contrejour, 2016) which proposed a variation around the Indochinese youth of Marguerite Duras.
In this new series, she draws from her childhood memories, from the stories of her grandparents who lived at the same period and in the same places as Marguerite Duras, unfathomable mysteries feeding what she feels todayas a part of common imagination between her and the writer.
Through these technical processes, the artist shapes as much as she restores the world unfolded before her eyes to extract images that confront the fragility of memories and the ability of photography to create truth more real than reality. This series was produced as part of the Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière Photography Prize in partnership with the Academy of Fine Arts.
