Born in 1959 - Portugal
Aurore de Sousa was born in 1959 in Portugal. She lives and works in Grenoble. Aurore de Sousa has had shows regularly since 1996, in France and abroad. She has studied at the Grenoble Art School.
Influenced by the Land Art movement of the '70s, she addresses photography by exploring issues such as the act of walking and landscape. This experience is decisive and, in 1991, she decided to devote herself to photography. She has also created portraits and was interested in the female body. From 1994 onwards, her work is focused mainly on a poetic approach on themes such as identity, memory, and time, which she develops through several photo series.
In 2005, during a photographic residency in Lisbon she had the opportunity to explore the relationship between urban and intimate space. Since 2009, she has been focusing on series of photographs that question the poetic of gardens and of the body.
