For The Lady in waiting, photographer Clara Delaporte and stylist Marion Hassan draw inspiration from the work of  Diego Velazquez and other Spanish masters of the early 17th century. The sensuous richness of the baroque style finds in this story a modern interpretation, with the emotional content carefully balanced to visually and conceptually match current frames of vision and political contexts.

The border between being seen as a man or as a woman is very thin, and it is along this frontier that the story places its core exploration – in the play of light and shadow, and in placing of the subject in a zone of gender ambiguity. Assumptions and preconceptions surrounding androgyny and the gender spectrum are not fully tackled – instead, the viewer is invited to challenge their own knowledge or existing bias.
