Marion Poussier was born in Rennes in 1980. After three years at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière (2000-2003), she devoted herself entirely to photography. In 2006, she received the Lucien and Rodolf Hervé prize for her series of photographs on adolescence. Entitled Un été, this series was exhibited at the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie (Arles) under the patronage of Raymond Depardon and joined the collection of the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain and the Fonds national d'art contemporain. In 2010, Marion Poussier received the prize of the Academy of Fine Arts. In 2014, she was invited by the festival Cinéma en plein air (Parc de La Villette - Paris) to create a series of short films on adolescence.

Marion Poussier lives and works in Paris. Her photographs are exhibited in France and abroad. She is represented by the Galerie du Jour Agnès b.

"No one can understand our love. Others are too perfect to love. We will never be like everyone else because we are sensitive enough to see it, the beauty. Beauty in everything, everywhere. At every moment, it arises, it overwhelms us." Hugo to Emma / Facebook.

Marion Poussier about her exhibition in Deauville Love

"You haveto look hard to see a teenager in this city that's not really cut out for them. It is at the exit of the high school that you can find them in clusters. There they wait for their bus, their parents. They go home and move 5, 10, 15 or 20 km away from Deauville in the countryside. Scattered, they stay connected. Hundreds of text messages, hours on Facebook. In their words we hear their bodies talking. Of love. A complex web of intertwined threads links them to each other, invisible to the adult eye. She relays the moments when these links become tangible, when the eyes meet and the skins discover each other. It is fragile. And it is strong.
Equipped with a large format camera, I went to meet teenagers in Deauville and became interested in the enigmatic question of love at this age. I would like to be in love, you would like to be in love, we would like to be in love.
LOVE is a dive into the hearts of teenagers."
