Marion Poussier is a freelance photographer. A graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière, she works for such newspapers and magazines as Le Monde, Le Monde 2, La Croix, Les Inrockuptibles, Technikart and Elle.
She also pursues more personal projects reflecting her sensibility and concerns: photographs which, in reaching out towards others, speak to us of ourselves, our children and our neighbours.
Her reportage “Ils Habit(ai)ent au 61 rue d’Avron” – “They Live(d) at 61 Rue d’Avron”, a portrait of an apartment block and the people who live in it – has been shown at the Rencontres en Sud Gironde, the De Visu gallery in Marseille and the Artazart bookshop in Paris, and published in book form by Filigranes. The series “La Canicule” (“Dog Days”) received the Bourse du Talent award in 2003 and was shown at the Netherlands Institute in Paris in November 2004. Her current work, on teenagers, was given an honourable mention in the Kodak Critics Prize in 2005.
Marion Poussier presented her work at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2006: One summer at the Atelier des Forges; she also took part in the following collective exhibitions: Madame la Présidente in 2007; Paths to Olympus in 2008 and France 14 in 2010.
