Text by Bérangère Fromont included in the book:

"At 29 years old, Romy Alizee lost her innocence a long time ago. Romy Alizee likes to be naked. Romy Alizee likes eroticism. First a life model for others, often men, she decides to go behind the lens to impose her gaze as a free young woman. « If we feminists don't like the existing porn, it's up to us to create something we like, » says feminist artist and activist Annie Sprinkle.

In the form of self-portraits, Romy Alizee then begins to orchestrate her universe, an erotico-pornographic universe of which she becomes the undeniable Queen. She surrounds herself with friends, lovers, post-porn actresses and actors, a community in where love mixes with protests. She stages her most intimate fantasies, plays with genders and glorifies feminine domination.

Romy Alizee delivers her vision of plural sexualities with humour and provocation. Her writing is new, raw, and queer, as are her models. Far from archaic archetypes of pornographic imagery produced by men for men. Free from codes, language reinvents itself. Becomes political. Radical. The pornographic image becomes feminist.

Her portraits, sober and frontal, give her models a look, a breath, life. They cease to be objects of desire and fantasy for others, to become and assert themselves as their own subject, free and unique.
Romy Alizee celebrates youth. An independent, cross-disciplinary and generous youth which is open to all possibilities.

FURIE is a punk refrain, screamed in a mic grabbed by a velvet glove. "

  • Presentation by Maria Inc.: " It's 2019 and our bodies are still political. The 21st century still drags on with the same beauty standards of the last century. Those of a young, white, thin, ethereal and heterosexual woman. Beauty, or rather a   woman's first commercial asset; is a passport to a happy marriage, professional success and social recognition....
