Laetitia Tura

Laetitia Tura has, since 2001, been conducting a photographic project on the themes of borders, invisibility and the memory of migrant trajectories. Following Jnoub, a collection focused on the southern Lebanese border (2001), Linewatch, devoted to the US–Mexico border infrastructure (2004–2006), and Je suis pas mort, je suis là, on the detention of migrants in Morocco and the Spanish exclave of Melilla (2007–2012), she is currently working in the Pyrenees on the territories of the Retirada – the exodus of refugees of the Spanish Civil War – in 1939. In her work, she has developed an approach in which collecting people’s words is an integral part of the picture-making process.
