ABOUT

Anita Pouchard Serra had been using photography to document issues related to migration, identity, its spaces and territories. Little by little, her work begun to echo her personal history, making her question her own photography practice. What is the place and duty of the image in this process? This talk proposes to speak and debate about the representations of the migrant and cultural mix in our society of migrations.
