Seeuropeans is a series of portraits of European people on the beach (1994-2002). Albert and Verzone's photographic project was set around 1994 throughout Europe. They aimed at creating a large portrait gallery of the Europeans on the beach. A priori, all beaches look similar, and so do those who frequent them. Nevertheless, the portraits stemming from their investigations emphasize the numerous differences that may exist between people on the European beaches, from north to south. What mainly emerges from these pictures is how, on the beach, the particularities of the society to which we belong can be expressed in a surprising way. And, in the present context, it appeared essential to the two photographers to bring out the multiplicity, the individuality and the singularities of everyone, according to the country in which this one moves.
