Emilie Régnier is a photojournalist from Mali. Her series ‘Passporte’ explores identity and diversity. Using a small polaroid camera Emilie shines a light on the faces of her country:

‘I am really driven by the idea of showing a West African society that is growing,’ says Régnier. That means ignoring the easy and the rote: pictures of elites quaffing champagne, or images cataloguing the atrocities of war. Witnessing with a camera takes many forms. For Régnier, photographic truth is located in the bodily presence of young West Africans proudly negotiating their future, a diverse future of many possibilities.’
