The photographer and sex worker Alizée Romy uses self-portraiture to inventory today’s sexualities. She defiantly affirms her status as a sex object, reappropriates her own image and flips gendered roles, happy to play the bad girl with extreme desires. Her work invites us to step back and take another look at our vision of human relations in a heteronormative society. In December 2018, the newspaper Libération published an op-ed piece she wrote, signed by more than 115 artists and journalists, slamming sexist and other forms of censorship on social media, especially Instagram. Her work is often mentioned in the press, and her first book, Furie, published in 2018 by Maria Inc., is already out of print.
