An aging body is synonymous with shame: based on this observation, Clélia imagines the series Pretty children† Seeing that her mother felt uncomfortable on the beach, she confided to the Konbini art media that she realized “ the pressure to be beautiful, young, to keep the same body as when you were 20† “An order from the baseless society according to her: I thought to myself, God, we should crown her because she’s given birth seven times, and instead, we should make her feel bad about herself. The young photographer therefore decided to reverse the trend by sublimating the naked bodies of menopausal women in her work.

Her work has already been the subject of an exhibition ‘Who is afraid of old women?’ at the Cultural Center Schaerbeek in Brussels. The publication of a beautiful photo book is also planned shortly.

A young artist to follow and an approach that feels right: Don’t be afraid to age Ladies, beauty knows no age!
