Hortense Soichet is a photographer and author born in 1982. She is a member of the Studio Hans Lucas and holds PhD in aesthetics. She is currently working on the representation of territories and ways of life. By using the methodologies of human and social sciences, she implements projects within specific territories where she works on co-creating a picture: with the inhabitants and actors of the territories in the context of projects on ways of dwelling, with the co-authors in the context of collaborative and interdisciplinary projects and in some cases from existing images. Based on encounters, these projects often combine still or moving images with sounds or text. Her work is published by Créaphis editions.
