Marie-Laure Vareilles was born in 1966. After studying interior architecture and working as a graphic designer for a technical magazine, she decided, aged 36, to dedicate her time to her first love: art and photography.

These landscape montages made her famous. “I try to create the most realistic imaginary landscapes possible,” she explains, “I want spectators to invent their own story as they look at them, so that the photomontage comes to life according to each individual’s imagination.” Nowadays, Marie-Laure Vareille’s work takes the various forms of photo books, large-format prints, magazines, or even clothing collections!
