Roots of the heart Grow Together | Valentin Sidorenko
On the occasion of Nuits Photo 2022, Alexe Liebert, the artistic director of the festival, offered us a selection of photographic films from previous editions. She explains her choices...
Alexe Liebert's word
Transposed into a film, photography becomes matter, an instantaneous memory, malleable and stretchable to infinity; manipulating this photographic memory means understanding where it comes from and what it does. Valentin Sidorenko perfectly and simply illustrates this reflection by projecting himself into his own photographic and family memory, inviting us to question our own family chain of transmission.
