Maude Arsenault explore the themes of adolescence and life cycles related to the transitions to adulthood and sexual emancipation in particular with teen girls, women and youth as subjects. Through her photographs, Maude is thus working to create fictions, distilled from the real, featuring young women and children as subjects, organized in the form of tableaux and portraits. She articulates her work to examine traces of the unconscious during childhood and their possible transpositions into an eventual empowering adult life. Maude's photographs offer a delicate point of view, revealing the intimate universe of her subjects, drawing a thin line between voyeurism and candour.  At the center of her photographic works, there's people exposed exploring stages and moments related to their identity development.
