Laura Bonnefous
Laura Bonnefous photographer & director Through a mixed-media image that focuses on the spaces she encounters, or the ones she recreates, Laura Bonnefous offers us a poetic depiction of reality. His projects are cross-cut- ting between personal project and commissions through photography and film.

Inspired by the relationship that mankind maintains with our contemporary landscape, but also captivated by the mutation our society goes through, she studies and deciphers our humanity’s mythologies in order to depict them with sensitivity. She recreates with these elements from reality her own spaces : metaphorical and personal universes.

Both pictorial and sculptural, her work tends to abstraction, and thus, proposes a new archeology of our contemporary codes.

She developped her mixed-media practice by studying at the Beaux Arts de Paris, the Otis College of Art and Design of Los Angeles and Gobelins, l’école de l’image in Paris.
