“Traverse”, by Maïa Mazaurette
On June 23, 2014, Soren, 29, died of a heart attack in a lavender field. “The weather was fine, we could hear the whispering of the river”, tells the sweet voice of the author Maïa Mazaurette, bathed in a padded musical atmosphere. “I remember thinking that the days ahead were going to be very complicated. ”
From Vaucluse to Denmark, she then retraces her lover’s last journey, including related adventures. What to do with the t-shirt torn by the firefighters? From the 2 euro coin returned by the administration? How to pack the broad shoulders of the darling in the metal coffin imposed for repatriation by plane?
In the crypt of the small Danish church where she watches over him, with a bottle of Gigondas and lingonberry scones, the one who never wanted children and that Soren’s disappearance has judiciously spared from being a single mother (dreamed of a large family to him) realizes how vulnerable the body of a deceased person is – to wrap his gaze on him is “Maternal experience”, she adds.
Leaded by “The pity of others [qui] weighs three tonnes “, Maïa Mazaurette questions mourning without complexes . “Remember that you are not dead, his editor had texted him, and take notes! ” Two months after Soren’s death, she will fall in love with another man. A good scenario “Embarrassing”. ” Eh yes, she says, we can pronounce the words “dead” and “chance” in the same sentence… ”

“# 37 Béatrice Tupine (Women expose themselves)”, by Marine Lefort
Of the 39 episodes of this dedicated podcast “To entrepreneurs and actors in photography” (rather than artists), Marine Lefort gave the floor to 22 women. A generous parity among which the voice of Béatrice Tupin, founder of the festival Women show themselves in Houlgate (Calvados), takes on its full meaning.
It was late in the day that the former head of the “Obs” photo service wondered about the meager proportion of women photographers in the profession: “Twenty-seven years ago, they were only 18 in France, all categories combined. Today, they are in the majority in photo schools but not at the exit, in newspapers, or in galleries or festivals. ”
In Houlgate, Béatrice Tupin deploys treasures of relevance and energy to give them pride of place. Irène Jonas will be the guest of honor of the 2021 edition (from June 1 to August 8) of this meeting already considered as a reference and which has, moreover, the advantage of being covido-compatible since outside !
