Clémentine Schneidermann: An American Portrait

In 2009, MoMA put up an exhibition called Into the Sunset: Photography’s Image of the American WestThis exhibition chronicled and organized photography’s process of discovery the Great West. These photos took a million different shapes and forms but never strayed too far away from their meaty subject matter. Such an authentic portrait, however, was missing the young and fresh work of Clémentine Schneidermann. A French UK-based photographer, Schneidermann is invested in landscape and environment as an authentic rendition of self.

With the idea of environment as an “identity-reflector,” comes a certain intimacy in Schneidermann’s work that naturally stems from within the frame. It is an intimacy that is so minute that it can easily be overlooked. Like the corners of a room, captured at their most vulnerable state, or the reflection of a leg in a window.

Clémentine’s WILD wish:

To hitchhike from the north to the south pole on the American continent with someone I love.
