Publisher's presentation :
"#TheSelfeet is a series of self-portraits about the ridiculous practice of narcissism on the Internet. Social network feeds and our lives have been invaded by selfies. This topic has been mentioned more than 92 million time on Twitter in 2014. A narcissistic, self-centred, symbol of the «look at me, like me» trend. Artists, politics, models... Everyone is concerned by the «self-portrait» phenomenon.
By releasing #TheSelfeet, a compilation of her feet photos, describing her everyday tribulations, Lucie Beudet proposes her own pop, experimental and provocative interpretation of the digital trend. This «photo-biographic» project drew the attention of Pierre Bessard from Bessard editions. He proposed Lucie Beudet to publish her photos in the Zine Collection photo series, where famous photographers such as Cristina De Middel, Brian Griffin, Max Pam or Bernard Plossu were published before her.
Enthusiastic about the project, he explains that Lucie, «particularly understood this new global photography trend: modern and fashion. She managed to have an aesthetic photographic project, anchored in reality at the same time».
#TheSelfeet plays with lines, proportion and graphic effects but denounces also the one-upmanship «of the self».
With her creative project, Lucie Beudet wants to make us think about the way we digitally brand ourselves."

Introduction by Fabien Ribéry (in French only) : "L'être humain est lourd, terriblement, voilà bien son drama. Lorsque l'on est artiste, poète, compositeur de félicités, il est possible de s'alléger par la grâce du style. Alain Laboile est de ceux-ci, dont l'apesanteur est à la fois une recherche, une éthique et une nostalgie. Quand le quotidien est...
