Camille Lévêque (1985) is a freelance photographer born and raised in Paris, France.

Her works have been featured on various publications, online and in print, and have been exhibited in the US and in Europe.

Camille shoots in film and digital, she is based in Detroit but available for commissions and assignments worldwide.

 

She is founder and member of LIVE WILD collective and the co-founder of publishing house ORPHEUS STANDING ALONE.

 

Camille mainly explores intimacy and builds narrative series blending straight documentary works with an artistic and personal approach.

Her works think about relationships, matters of identity and origins - often looking at family as the cornerstone of her analysis. Working mostly around the archive, whether is it the subject or the media, she aims to illustrate the idea of memory, its impact on the present and future, its limits, and its fading.

If photography is a piece of evidence, she uses it either as a statement or to distort the truth, playing with the boundaries of the medium, and in a way, with the past. Very much influenced by her own family archive she makes encounters between various eras of photography, creating discussions working in echo around the photographic object.

Raised in a family of multicultural background, origins are the predominant topic of her work research and her practice illustrates this encounter between various influences and the way past influences the present, and shapes the future.
