An artist with an atypical career path, Claire Artemyz is a photographer currently living and working in Paris.
From medicine to photography
Claire Artemyz was a physician and neurobiologist who decided to dedicate herself full time to her photography in 1997. Her desire to work on the image, exploring and questioning the idea of identity without communicating in words is what led her to leave her career as a scientist for an artistic career instead. She subsequently began her studies in plastic arts, enrolled at the École des Gobelins in 2001 and improved her skills in video and photography. Since then, she has explored the world, past and present, with the forensic eye of a scientist combined with the sensitivity of an artist.
