When she graduated with the best mention from Condé’s schools (Paris) in photography, Elodie Pierrat was then trained by the Australian photographer Vee Speers after her studies.
"Elodie Pierrat seeks to understand herself, her identity, her roots and sometimes this pain buried deep inside of her. This reflects on her research on deportation and the death camps. Her attention to these testimonies shapes her ability to put words onto her inner scars. Furthermore, Elodie immerses us into a research on life before birth and this particular place of the liquid element. The play of light, the fuzzy or anguished side of water’s aspect between the subject and the photographer contributes to the originality and poetry of her photos that are born from her bathing and which each time reveal a little of her and also our identity.
