Nolwenn Le Flanchec is a Thai-French creative director and photographer based in Amsterdam. Made in collaboration with her studio-mate, German creative director and stylist Marie Godt, “Haus am Strand” came to fruition in 2020 while the two were visiting Langeoog—an east Frisian island in northwest Germany. Boasting a population of less than 2,000, Langeoog is home to several generations of Godt’s family and exists as a familiar landmark of her youth.
Describing the influence of her grandmother’s place at the “epicenter” of her big family, Godt explains that the “matriarchal point of view” has shaped the series and their decision to photograph women close to her. With a focus on identity, location, and the female perspective, “Haus am Strand” is a fusion of documentary and staged photography, painting a dreamy portrait of the quiet details of small town life and the strong women of Godt’s community.
