In Van Gogh and Gauguin’s footsteps, I decided to revisit this site through photography. Using this image, I tried to echo the paintings of these artists who were so talented in capturing the warm autumn light in which it is basking. Often ignored by those who pass through the city, this ancient necropolis is both mysterious and peaceful.

Taking the face as its subject of observation, she works on the self-image and on the relation to the other in her long term projects. Lise’s work has been exhibited in France and in foreign countries, notably in collective shows in the Filles du Calvaire gallery, in the Rencontres de la Photographie, in Jeune création, in ManifestO (Toulouse) and in Switzerland during the Nuit de la Photo.
