Severine Blanchet

Séverine Blanchet (1972) lives near Toulouse but her photographs are often from countries she has traveled to. She develops her film herself and likes to manipulate the original picture. Controlling the editing process allows her to play with a large spectrum of manual transformations at the different stage of developing a photograph: contrast, intensity, cropping, hiding, she even scratches on to the photo itself. Being the editor gives her more power after the ‘click’, revealing her sensibility and strength at that stage also.
