Since 2010, she has distinguished herself by winning several national and international awards, including the International Emerging Artist Award. Her photographs are regularly exhibited in solo or group shows, and were notably showcased at the Rencontres d ’Arles In the end of 2012 she has published her first book “Dreamalities”, which is edited by KnowWare editions. In 2014, this book is adapted as a short film and has been awarded in several international festivals.
Her approach about her work is the following:
Between dreams and reality, I create pictures which look like they escaped from imagination, which disturb the categories of the material world. The better to get back to our world however, with eyes fed by unusual yet familiar visions. Thus I explore the poetic value of the collective unconscious: each picture relies on classical visual codes and symbolism to express universal feelings. I’m working on how our objective external world and our subjective inner realities can intertwine; between private and public, our world keeps on being reinvented.
