Véronique Prugnaud comes back to the origins and the conception of the book Faire Face. Histoires de violences conjugales.
Facing up. Stories of domestic violence is a long-term photographic project, carried out between 2017 and 2022, on the issue of violence against women and domestic violence approached from three angles/series: feminicides “Proofs of Love”, perpetrators of domestic violence “Monsters do not exist” and victims of violence “A room of one’s own”.
Each of these series evokes in its own way the reality of this violence, its intensity, its banality.
They are based on the same conviction: domestic violence is a terrible reality, but this reality can change if we take the trouble to look it in the face.
Through these individual and singular stories – told through images and testimonies – it is society as a whole that must “face up” to deconstruct systems of thought and encourage the search for constructive solutions.
