Winner of the 2018 Young Talents Springboard

Graduated from the photography and video department of the National School of Arts in Bucharest in 2016, Felicia Simion is the youngest member of the Tremplin Jeunes Talents Planche (s) Contact 2017.
Sensitive personality, lover of art, his photography is available in several parts. First turned to the dreamlike self-portrait, staged, his pursuit of studies at the Faculty of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology also leads him to consider the documentary with more attention. His compositions, imprinted with the traces of the great masters of the genre, reveal a strong and controlled visual identity, between intimate fiction, almost surreal, and documentary.   
Remembering his first photograph - that of his parents on vacation on the beaches of the Black Sea, taken at the age of 13 with what she calls a "small plastic box", Felicia Simion wishes to invest Deauville on a background personal and autobiographical. Between sweet nostalgia and romanticism, sensitivity and femininity, she wishes to relive and transpose this family memory, 18 years later, at the other end of Europe.

Winner of the Jury Prize at the Festival Planche (s) Contact 2019.
