Ophélie Loubat
Photographer

Ophélie Loubat is a documentary photographer born in 1999 in Toulouse, France. She is now based between Paris and the South of France.

After studying applied foreign languages, she completed a Master’s degree in political science in Paris. She started working in NGOs supporting refugees in Calais and Paris, before deciding to devote herself to photography. In 2022, she started the photojournalism course at the ÉMI-CFD in Paris in order to develop her visual language and storytelling. In summer 2023, she was selected to participate in the Canon Student Development Program workshop in Girona, Spain.

The subjects that drive her are related to family relationships and human rights issues. In 2023, she won the Prix ISEM Jeune Photographie, part of the photography festival Image Singulières for her story “Yves and Ismail” about a dad and his son living in Brest. She continues this long-term project on single parent families with the support of Agence Vu’ mentorship program.

Her photographic practice answers a desire to get into people’s intimacy and document their stories authentically. For her, it is a way to highlight societal issues through the prism of intimate stories.

Her work has been displayed in several collective exhibitions in France. She collaborates regularly with French newspapers and institutions. Since November 2023, she has been a member of the platform Divergence Images that distributes her work.

    Beneath The Surface
    Jul 1 – Sep 29, 2024
    Arles, France

Photographers, artists and curators reveal their visions and stories, not least that of our humanity, by turns thwarted, in endless redefinition, resilient, but also visionary.
