Solo show from Laura Henno.

Staying true to her exploration of a fallen humanity about which she tells a great tale, Laura Henno, whose previous work treated the subject of migrants from the Comoro Islands, immerses herself in the Californian desert, at the lost Slab City. Emblem of an America at the size of an infamous camp of outsiders, here the pioneer life is lived out in dreams become nightmare. She settled into a trailer with her camera for two months in 2017 to meet, observe, and exchange with people, aiming to break the clichés and discover the characters. Some have hopes for a beyond, if not for lack of a future. Henno enters into dialogue with the full history of American photography, paying tribute to the photographers who, starting with Dorothea Lange up to William Eggleston, would create our visual imaginary of the South.
