Homage to Claude Cahun

Claude Cahun (1894-1954), an artist not so often known and talked about, was a curious spirit of her time. Surrealist photographer and writer, she breaks social boundaries, challenging notions of beauty, logic, and gender. Cahun creates a multiplicity of characters through self-portrait, as a chameleon of the female identity.

“Sous ce masque un autre masque. Je n’en finirai pas de soulever tous ces visages.”
Claude Cahun
