Born 1957 in Marseilles.
Lives and works in Paris.
The titles of her series – Correspondances, Equivalences, Stillness – epitomize the themes of her work that constantly questions identity, time and mobility, and how they are represented. While faces and bodies form her core iconography, Isabelle Waternaux conveys the very essence of their vitality by confronting them with their own alterity or by capturing them in motion. From twin portraits with almost imperceptible differences to dancers photographed in action, hers is an aesthetic of instantaneity.
