Alice Lemarin has always been interested in images. Passionate about cinema, she made her first videos and had fun making short films before breaking her video camera. It is however this event, at the age of 16, that will allow her to discover her mother’s old camera. This discovery marks the beginning of her adventure in the world of still images.

Unable to work doing candid photo shots, she creates offbeat and surprising scenes giving a vintage style to all of her work.
