Synopsis

In the privacy of her apartment, we discover Romy Alizée, directing bodies (women, men & non binary) with unabashed sexuality, in search of intensity and beauty. Captured in flash, her photos affirm the power of a very personal sexual aesthetic, never devoid of humour. Between directing shoots and hanging her exhibition, the photographer unzips the heart of her work and unveils her new project: documenting sex workers far from the images they get stuck with.

What you will find in this film

Three shoots with Romy Alizée • The various faces of her self-portraits • Her photographic journey • The ongoing composition of her images • Work with film and self timer • Research into the positioning of bodies when the photographer is facing the lens • The ’architecture of her book FURIE • Chats with her models • What drives Romy Alizée in photography • A certain sexuality among women • Her project to document sex workers • Her colours • Her black and whites • The need to reclaim rejection and shame about sex work • New accessories

What underpins everything I do is transforming a place of fragility, a place of shame and stigma, into a place of strength and power.
