Une maison. Un bord de route. Une grand-mère. Un chien. Une grille. Des absents. Du feu. Un cochon. Des mains. Encore une grille. Ceux qui restent. Ceux qui partent. Des regards tendres. "Dans l’œil du Chien" est une histoire d’amour filial, poussée par le besoin de lien qui précède les jours où les gens disparaissent. A house. A roadside. A grandmother. A dog. A gate. The missing. A fire. A pig. Hands. A gate again. Those who stay behind. Those who will be leaving. Tender gazes. "The dog’s eye" is a story of filial love, born from the need of closeness that is felt the days before people disappear.

Laure Portier was born in 1983 in the Deux-Sèvres region. After studying modern literature at Toulouse University and a year at ESAV, she entered the Image department at INSAS in Brussels.
