ME & ME is a series of portraits of drag shows. Started in July 2013, this project still in progress, has led me to Mons, Liège, Lille and Paris. The goal was to meet transformists to understand their process of "transformation." They are amateurs, professionals, young or old, whether for work or just a passion, these men helped me understand photographically and in interviews the pleasure they have becoming a woman for an evening, a show or a simple shot. The interviews helped to expose the often painful stories with happy issues, but also sarcasm, ridicule, insults and disturbed others look. They also highlighted the insurance, assumption and the desire to be what they are. This temporary transformation goes beyond simple disguise. This goes much further. They do not take on a role, they just become another person they want to live for a while.
