“Stories from the Sea”, 2016 | Camille Michel
Camille is a french photographer who studied Arts at Paris 8 University and Photography at the Arles National School of Photography. Her photography are poetic documentaries.
Her work addresses the relationships between human and the environment, and their respective impacts, for societies in close proximity to nature. The influence of nature, sometimes hostile, on the way of life of men and the human damage on the environment. What relationships do man and nature have in the 21st Century? What survives today of past ways of life? What is the impact of industrialisation? She uses photography to document the daily life of populations and communities in times of great upheaval.
She has been represented by the Hans Lucas Studio since 2015. She is a member of the photographic observatory of the poles.
