For six decades, World Press Photo has been expanding its mission as an independent nonprofit, drawing on experience to guide visual journalists, storytellers, and audiences around the world.
Born and raised in Basel, Switzerland, Louise moved to Paris, France, about 4 years ago. Although images have always played a big role in her life, it is in Paris, this photogenic and inspiring city, that she starts to develop her photographical activity. Her pictures are generally not taken in a specific aim, but with the desire and the need to capture atmospheres, actions, moods – to capture the beauty of life. Louise is a dreamer, a globetrotter, an admirer of human beings and the phenomenon which we call earth. And that’s where she gets her main inspiration from – her dreams, her walks, her journeys – the world she is living in.
