Invited to the Planche(s) Contact Festival in 2015

Equipped with a large format view camera, Marion Poussier went to meet the teenagers of Deauville with the objective of pursuing her work about youth. She focused on the enigmatic issue of love at the age of fifteen and the teenagers’ desire to be in love. Her photo collection titled Love is a plunge into the teenagers’ heart.

Marion Poussier was born in Rennes in 1980. After having attended the École Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière for three years (2000-2003), she decided to exclusively focus on photography. In 2006, she received the Lucien et Rodolf Hervé award for a series of photographs about adolescence. This series, titled Un été (A summer), has been exhibited during the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie (Arles) under the mentoring of Raymond Depardon, and joined the Cartier foundation for contemporary art collection and the National Foundation for Contemporary Art. In 2010, Marion Poussier received the Prix de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts. In 2014, she was invited to the Open Air Film Festival (Parc de La Villette – Paris) to produce a series of short movies about adolescence.
