We imagined ourselves official photographers of a leaders’ wife. We captured the public
face of the dictatorship. Through the co-incidence of timing we are there to
witness the raise and fall of the regime.
As the the dictatorship becomes more and more isolated from the
people the paranoia of the tyrants’ wife can be seen in changing face.
As the power slips away so does her ability to fully control her
portrayal, like an actor stuggling with reality.
This project was inspired by the book of Diane Ducret " Femmes de dictateur", published by Perrin 2011.
