Bénédicte Blondeau lives and works in Berlin. She studied Photography at Ar.co, Lisbon and Academy of Fine Arts (KASK), Ghent. She graduated as a Master in Applied Communication specialized in Media Education at IHECS, Brussels. Bénédicte Blondeau also worked as a documentary movies director.
For her work, Bénédicte Blondeau finds inspiration in her immediate environment. The spaces depicted in her pictures are mostly empty and silent and could be seen as a kind of « heterotopia ». The environment depicted in her images becomes like another space, real and absolutely unreal at the same time. Here and there, characters emerge, fragile and uncertain, without being seen completely. An expanding parallel universe which finds its source in urban interiors or sometimes in nature used to create images whose ways of interpretation contrast with the actual flow of images generated by the media in our societies.
