We are two female artists based in Montreal. We have been best friends since we were 12 years old and growing up together was quite an adventure. We have seen our bodies change from childhood to adulthood and this intimacy in our friendship made us think: why not collect pictures of all kinds of bums ? Maybe we would discover how crazy it is to hate our own bodies and simply see how unique each and every woman is. And, this way, start loving ourselves a little bit better.
Emilie Mercier (right), artist and professional photographer, brings with her sensibility and understanding of the shy silhouettes which present themselves to her. She studied photography at Concordia University and fine arts at University of Quebec in Montréal. She also works in the music video industry as an assistant producer and stylist.
Our mission? Show the beauty in every shape and help women take back the power of their bodies by creating intimate rituals through art and sensibility in order to bring back a sense of female communication.
