The Author : Camille Reynaud


Camille Reynaud is a graduate of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris. For the past two years, she has been living in Le Havre where she has been exploring other forms of writing as part of a master’s degree in creative writing. Two projects have thus emerged: a first autobiographical narrative based on the model of sociological investigation, by successively going back and forth between individual and collective through the multiplicity of narratives and life stories, and the crossing of various documentary sources – photographs, court records, medical reports, statistical data, testimonies and press articles; a text/image diptych at the intersection of Vivian Maier’s work with family photos and her own photographic practice.
