Nina Medioni poursuit des projets d’essence documentaire l’amenant à s’intéresser à des communautés en apparence fermées. Ces travaux sont autant de tentatives de donner à voir un autre comme une individualité inédite que de questionner sa propre place d’opératrice d’images.
Le portrait devient alors un outil de rencontre lui permettant d’approcher des singularités au sein de groupes, souvent des femmes, d’interroger la présence ou l’absence de figures, parfois marginales, dans l’espace public.
Nina Medioni pursues documentary projects that lead her to take an interest in seemingly closed communities. These works are as much attempts to show the other as a new individuality as to question her own place as an image-maker.
The portrait then becomes a meeting tool allowing her to approach singularities within groups, often women, to question the presence or absence of figures, sometimes marginal, in the public space.
In 2015, After graduating with an MA in Literature, she enrolled at the National School of Photography in Arles. Here, she developed an interest in documentary photography; in the image as a tool to meet the ‘other’. In 2019, Medioni spent several months with her Jewish Orthodox family in Tel Aviv, marking the start of her series, The Veil. The project has since been exhibited in both France and Israel. In 2022, she began the Un été au Prépaou series, which charts her encounter with a working-class neighbourhood in the city of Istres. She is currently editing her first film, Le Chalet, which studies the complexities of a neighbourhood surrounding her uncle's house – a seemingly misplaced cottage in the Parisian cityscape.
