Artist from a plastic background, Laurence Leblanc's photographic practice is marked by a particular attention to the material and the medium. With her, the act of creation is constructed by impregnating the subject and its environment.
Laurence Leblanc was welcomed in residence for the 7th edition of Planche (s) Contact and produced in Deauville a series of sensitive and attentive images to the spaces that develop between humans and things.
