法国摄影师Claudine Doury出生于布洛瓦,现居巴黎。1994年,她作为一名纪实摄影师前往前苏联拍摄先锋夏令营。慢慢的,孕育出了这个关于青春期(尤其是少女)的Artek系列。“在这段社会运动的空窗期,孩子们可以尽情的催化他们的梦想,更多的关注女性是因为,这是了解世界的通道。”

Claudine Doury is a photographer born in Blois and living in Paris. “The Artek project began in 1994 with my desire to document the biggest pioneer summer camp in former Soviet Union. Step by step I conceived a project to make a series more specifically on adolescence, not caring any more about the activities but on the contrary about the ‘slow times’, the ‘empty times’ that are so specific to teenagers, and that they use to develop their dreams. My choice to portray women. To me it is one of the means to understand the world.”
