It was years before CharlesHenri Couraud could distance himself enough following the death of his grandmother, to be able to let go of the emotions surrounding her house, her furnishings and her personal items, to give voice to the memories and to accompany the pictures with new words. Mauricette is all about saying farewell and paying homage, a melancholy declaration of love for one’s own story and a memorial to the transience of life.

Couraud’s strong compositions and square excerpts capture details that conceal just as much as they reveal. They are part of an associative riddle, the solution of which can only be imagined by those who have lived a similar past to that of the photographer.

CharlesHenri Couraud

Born in the south west of France in 1975, Couraud currently works in Luxembourg and lives in the German part of the Moselle region. While he became interested in photography already many years ago, founding the online gallery for fine-art photography 620lab.com in 2014, it is only recently that he has started showing his own photographic work. His very personal series, Mauricette, reveals how he processes the memories and feelings that link him to the house of his deceased grandmother.
