Series of 43
2013

Dealing with the immaterial geography of a place and the issue of ‘Heimat’ – the origin where identity is forged – this series is composed of childhood memories and fragments of utopia, encompassing gestures, objects, landscapes, portraits, observations, and wanderings. Diffuse and in constant movement, my ‘Heimat’ is more an impression than a place, situated somewhere between Constantine, Tunis, Männedorf, and other cities.

Michal Florence Schorro

(1987) lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. 
She graduated with a Master Degree from ECAL, Lausanne in 2013 and now works as an independent photographer and art director for various clients as well as on personal projects.
