Petite robe de fête
by Delphine Schacher

Here it’s about childhood, countryside, looks, expectations but also melancholy. A series of young girls portraits made in Transylvania, half-way between the documentary and poetry, under the shape of a visual tale which has childhood and the fragility of this precious time as a main theme. These portraits mix with the pictures of the traditional universe in which these young girls live and make us discover a different vision of a painfully marked Romania, moving forward in the present, while living in the shadow of its history like an adult taking his first steps outside childhood. In a hide and seek game between shadow and light, “Little party dress” launches the ball of these unique and fleeting moments of grace which are bound to disappear.
