Of great metaphorical scope, her photographic work results from a reflective dynamic that finds its limits between normality and marginality. Yasmine Laraqui reveals a troubled, imaginary world populated by figures and bodies that are visual supports for the expression of malaise, a tension of urgency. Dominated by ambivalent feelings - hope/despair, melancholy/lightness - these images, falsely banal, compose in a way the fictional pages of a diary. They reflect the inner struggle of a disillusioned youth who seeks in vain to redefine the role and existence of identity games in society.
