At thirteen, Lise Sarfati made her first photographs with a 6x6 camera borrowed from her sister. At that time she accompanied her mother who was visiting old ladies in their Nice apartments. She first took a portrait of these women, then photographed their apartments.

Fascinated by Russia and the revolutionary periods, she settled there in 1989 with the will to live the upheavals that accured accross the country at this time. She will reside there for ten years, during which she will realize a photographic work based on a personal research whose result will be similar to documentary photography although it will not borrow its classic codes.

She was a recipient of the 1996 Niépce Award. She was a member of the Magnum Photos agency from 1996 to 2011.
