Of Franco-Venezuelan origin, Marjorie Brunet-Plaza is a photographer born in 1985 in Paris and currently living in Germany.
Photography is a family affair
It was her father who initiated Marjorie Brunet-Plaza into the world of photography at the age of 12 with a camera and some film. In pursuit of her artistic quest, this young woman subsequently studied the visual arts, perfecting her skills in drawing and painting only to return to practicing photography which she had effectively taught herself.
Marjorie Brunet Plaza’s favourite art form is the portrait, of people. Her technique varies from one grouping to the next. She uses digital technology in the search for an aesthetic, a new interpretation of a subject. The artist works with mutable elements such as water or interfaces such as digital alterations. She pays a reflective and poetic attention to lines, the composition, the nuances of colour, to the pictorial and emotional and above all, is ever sensitive about the authenticity of the subject being photographed.
Art and travel
Marjorie Brunet Plaza is as passionate about travelling as she is about art. One could almost interpret her technical research as a technical journey. The artist started travelling when she was very young and has lived in various different countries such as France, Venezuela and Germany. She has taken part in numerous exhibitions in France and Berlin which has enabled her to fuse her two passions and led her to put her suitcases down in the German capital.
