Monique Sucric (1981) is a photographer who lives and works in Rotterdam. The main theme in her work is the attachment felt by people for their home, a place or a country. Her investigation covers the way in which this emotional band can be construed from environments, interiors, photos, symbols, rites and rituals. This attachment has an illusionistic dimension. Images reflecting this subjective emotional content fascinate her. In her work she relate to the ubiquitous place photography has in our lives; how photos determine our image of our identity and history. She make use of varied types of photographic images: archive photos, family photos, film stills, found-photos and self shot photos. By placing these images in a new context, changing them by manipulation, or combining them with others, they gain a new meaning. Layered stories unfold, taking their cue from the sequencing and combinations of the images.
