Description

If money cannot buy happiness, what drives people to participate in a lottery? And what effect does (almost) winning have on someone’s life, or that of the people around them? Cécile Hupin and Katherine Longly set out to compare dreams with reality by giving a voice to those who won or came close to winning a jackpot, for better or for worse. Their stories form a reflection of our society, our aspirations, our beliefs, and our fraught relationship with money. All of the personal accounts that Hupin and Longly document in ‘Just My Luck’ are invariably and inextricably linked to notions of luck (and bad luck) – as if believing in one risks activating the other.

Katherine Longly is a photographer and visual artist based in Brussels, with degrees in photography, communication and anthropology. She is driven by the desire to understand social phenomena, focuses on the human aspect in her projects, and always includes a touch of humour. Her first two books, To tell my real intentions, I only want to eat haze like a hermit (self-published) and Hernie & Plume (published by The Eriskay Connection) are out of print. Cécile Hupin is a writer, performer and designer, with degrees in theatre from IAD and set design from La Cambre. For her writing, she prefers to work with unexpected encounters and true stories, while transposing these into her own artistic universe. She won the silver medal in literature at the Jeux de la Francophonie 2023 in Kinshasa. Katherine and Cécile share a strong taste for investigative work and human encounters. Together, they create hybrid projects that capture, with tenderness and humour, extra-ordinary realities that are fiercely revealing of the world we live in.
