Agnès Godard

France Born in: 1951

Born in 1951, Agnès Godard is director of photography.

She began her career as a camera assistant alongside Henri Alekan and then Robby Müller for the film Paris, Texas by Wim Wenders. She continued her career by becoming a cameraman and quickly became a cinematographer.

Known in particular for her faithful collaboration with Claire Denis, she has been working for years on the imaging of her films. In 2001, she won the César for best photography for Beau Travail .

In 2009, she received the special prize from the Superior Technical Commission for Image and Sound and then, in 2013, the special Camera 300 d'or prize was awarded to her for her contribution to world cinema. Peter Handke, Agnès Varda, Emanuele Crialese, Claude Berri, Noémie Lvovsky, André Téchiné, Tonie Marshall, Ursula Meier, Sébastien Lipschitz ... so many directors who have appealed to her images, with such particular textures, and to the sensuality they express.

In 2012, she took the digital step and worked on additional lights, playing with consistency, driven by a desire to reinvent the image, eternally.

In 2015, Agnès Godard exhibited her photographs for the first time at the Galerie Cinéma Anne-Dominique Toussaint. 

Her series My Favorite Dance features a couple, embodied by Emmanuelle Bercot and Stéphane Bouquet, through clichés with a texture almost as palpable as evanescent. These photographs, both imprecise and striking, were also the subject of a book published by Editions du Seuil.
