“Moving house many times in my childhood removed any attachment I could have had to places. To be from everywhere is also to be from nowhere.
Transeo means to travel from one place to another.”

Is the place you are from a specific physical place or rather a collection of memories, places and encounters?
Paul Ricoeur suggests that our problems of personal identity can be resolved by story-telling. Telling your own story allows you to affirm your identity: between history and fiction, between a feeling of belonging and one of denial, this exploration is an attempt to answer my question and to say “there is where I come from”.

Paul Hennebelle’s work was commended by the jury at “Propositions d’artistes” in 2016.

Born in New York City in 1992, and holding French-American dual citizenship, he lives and works in Brussels. He studied photography at the ESA “Le 75” in Brussels.
