"dissemblance" is a series of portraits of people who have a birthmark on their face. this work aims at questioning ourselves on the (non-)importance of physical appearance and more generally deals with the issue of being different.

Photo by @delphine_blast | "cholitas, the revenge of a generation".

discriminated against for a long time, the cholitas are now a driving force in bolivia. in scenes that were unimaginable 10 or 20 years ago, nowadays they have real clout in the economic, political, and fashion worlds.the cholitas have managed to find their place in modern society without denying their collective past. this picture is part of a series aiming to renew insight into bolivian womanhood.

Photo by @delphine_blast |the wayúu people live in la guajira, colombia and is one of the last matriarchal societies in the world. women play a central role in the community : the population is organized into clans in which each inhabitant is linked to the others by a strong maternal bond. here, a young wayúu woman poses in a traditional dress in front of the jagüey of her community. this freshwater pool that is used to water the animals is a central element in each clan and has a strong symbolic power. •
