"Kourtney Roy (...) is the example of the uninhibited and sincere artist who does not take herself seriously." A rising star in fashion and commercial photography, she was awarded the Carte Blanche PMU in 2013.
Model and photographer at the same time: to play, to experiment, to have fun, these words seem to guide the personal researches of this singular photographer. Presented all over the world, her self-portraits are single-image films. "I started doing self-portraits at the university," she recalls. "I'm a little shy, I do not really like to direct people during photo shoots. In addition, having a model is quite old fashioned as a concept. The idea of being a photographer and a subject at the same time seems to me more interesting. "
This series has been exhibitied in Paris at Le BAL during the Spring 2014, as part of a partnership with the sponsor "Carte Blanche" PMU.
