Nolwenn Hadet has never left her native Brittany except for the sensational expeditions she takes to the furthest reaches of the world. Born in 1973 in Morbihan, she has been passionate about photography since childhood.
Her photos are inseparable from her travels; from the vast plains of Botswana to the frozen surfaces of the Arctic ice floe, the planet is truly her playing field.
These animal photographs present a tender and joking vision of polar bears, the main victims of melting ice caps due to global warming.
Makeup, shooting, post-production, Juliette Jourdain is at the heart of the creative process from beginning to end. Born in 1991, she works from her Paris studio, concentrating on the art of the portraits. Internationally recognised, she excels at staging her models. Her motto? Never back down from even the most eccentric ideas. Her inspiration? The cinema, music, painting, notably for the emotions they provoke.
Born in Athens, Marie-Laure Vareilles is committed to honouring her homeland, for which she has great admiration. Thanks to her breath-taking aerial views, she captures the paradisical islands and mountainous panoramas which characterise Greece. From her first paintings in 2001, the artist has shown her work in London, New-York , Paris, and Monaco. She won the Sandro Botticelli prize in Florence and first prize from National Geographic.
MARIE LAURE VAREILLES
SOCIALLY COMMITTED PHOTOGRAPHER
Marie-Laure Vareilles has photographed people around the world for thirty years. Today, she uses this body of photographs to creates surprising montages. Her goal is for “each montage to become a story that anyone can make his or her own and use to tell his or her own story”, with the ever-present desire to feature men and women of all origins and to question “the uniformity of culture and thinking in the world”.
