I have been photographing post-war prefabs since 2001. I lived in the UK for 15 years where I could feed my passion for prefabs by photographing and filming them, recording their residents’ stories and memories. I had publications and exhibitions, published two books on the subject with Bloomsbury and Historic England and founded the Prefab Museum. Since I have moved back to France in 2016 I am spending quite a lot of time maintaining my passion for prefabs – baraques as we call them here – by spotting them, and of course, still photographing them, filming, recording and even drawing them! I am also very glad I found a French alter ego, Mickaël Sendra, who created a micro-museum of « baraques » in Lorient, Brittany, and who is as mad as I am for prefabs! With him and in partnership with the city of Lorient, I had a 9 months solo show, Préfabuleux, on prefabs in Lorient from October 2019 till June 2020. My Prefabs project obviously means a lot to me but although it changes, grows and takes different forms and directions. It travels with me and I travel with it.
