Fovea


The fovea is ”a small depression in the retina of the eye where visual acuity is highest.’’ (Larousse dictionary, 2018).

Fovea is a photographic series that highlights the visual impairment of teenagers and young adults in Quebec (Canada). These young people have a striking life path that demonstrates extraordinary resilience and that is felt at their touch. During adolescence, a crucial period in their lives in which the construction of their identity and their projection in the future is determined, they are all too often stigmatized, they have a deep desire to be seen as humans, like others.
