Marie Ozanne

Born in 1980 in Orléans, France, she studied Political Sciences and Sociology in Lille. Her interest in Arts led her to voice her explorations and observations of society through image. In 2003, she began to practice documentary photography at the Contraste workshops in Brussels before studying Art Sciences at La Sorbonne. She has photographed and taught photography in different countries before settling in Brussels. Her work has evolved from documentary photography to a photography that borders fabrication, in between reality and fiction, and continues to teach.

"Photography helps me to draw guidelines of reality in order to understand its meaning; it reveals the strangeness of the world and of existence."

Luna adentro

Barcelona 2010 > 2011

Attracted by la Barceloneta, the neighborhood of Barcelona that is folded on itself by the seaside; I wandered in the streets and on perched terraces at dusk, at a time when everything tightens itself on private space.
