Come Hell Or High Water: Coco Amardeil Captures Young People Trying To Keep Their Heads Above The Sea

Coco Amardeil: “We all live in uncertain times, but for young people, the process of self-discovery is even more unsettling when set against the backdrop of our mercurial world … The youth of today live in a time where uncertainty about the future, fueled by a distrust of politics, institutions and the media, has reached epic proportions. The mass of contradictions created by past generations has left them with a lot of grey areas. As a result, they are overcome with apprehension and anxiety about their place in a confused and changing world, a world without any reliable points of reference and a thousand different forms of violence. It is this moment in life, a time of soul-searching and self-discovery, that I wanted to capture through this series of portraits. This generation, the generation that will make up the world of tomorrow without having much of an idea of where they are going or what they want, is just trying to keep their heads above the sea of stimuli that surrounds them”.
Coco Amardeil was born in Toronto over 20 years ago. After she graduated from university, she moved to Paris and began her career as a photographer. Her sense of aesthetics along with her elegant and offbeat style, original subjects and inventive image treatment have resulted in a distinctive body of work, such as her series Furniture Fucking and 8 Femmes. Amardeil has been recognized for the creative and graphic quality of her work and has worked for several magazines – Vogue Bambini, Elle, Madame Figaro – as well as for major brands such as Veuve Clicquot, Le Bon Marché, L’Oréal, and Godiva.
