Self-taught, Colette RICHARD freezes the details of her daily life most often in a sensual, even mysterious, disturbing atmosphere to bring awareness to the essentials of life. For that, it attaches itself to the details that we miss most of the time in our daily infernal race. In turn, its case becomes an instrument of leisure, a therapeutic tool to be, here and now, a means of expression of its inner being and a reflection of its soul. Author of the book "If I can, you can!" at Thebookedition.com where she explains, among other things, the role of photography in its rebirth.
