WOMEN BY A WOMAN features portraits of women that Clotilde met during her travels within Malaysia, Cambodia and Thailand. She was struck by how unique and different women in each country appear, act, move, dress, laugh, smile; this same curiosity led her to create her series of women across Southeast Asia.
“While wandering with my faithful camera through Southeast Asia, I quickly became fascinated by the very different cultures and appearances of the people. My curiosity is the very simple reason why I started this gallery of Women across Southeast Asia.
What a journey it is to travel around Malaysia, Cambodia or Thailand and make the effort to meet other women and to exchange with them. I gave them all she could in a smile, and they gave me back so much on camera.
I was a foreigner in their land, a stranger in their community, the one intruding in their daily life, but they all took the time to look back at me.”
