Photographer Alex Dinaut had a simple idea: to ask people to make faces with their masks. From this idea, the series "Grimasque" was born, black and white portraits that make you smile.
For the duration of a photo, the "Grimasque" project gives another credibility to the mask, which has become an anxiety-provoking symbol of a struggling society. It brings a little lightness to this piece of fabric that has become so heavy and proves that behind this mask also hides older children.
After more than 1000 portraits, I would like to exhibit all the portraits on a huge wall to show the whole world how the French were resilient in the face of this constraint of the mask and how they knew how to keep their childish souls.
