Marlène Awaad


Photojournalist based in Paris.

                                          “I discovered photography by developing my first film rolls in the garage of my parents. I studied art history, and continued my studies at photo school Icart, from which I graduated in 2004 with a passion for photojournalism. Then I began as a freelance with Le Figaro newspaper and in 2006, joined IP3 Press. My first stories leaded me to document very different topics such as the living conditions of migrants or the Rael sect. Whether the subject is social or societal, what interests me is how human beings are affected by the society in which they live and how they interact with each other. My work is regularly published in national and international press. Today, I collaborate also with newspapers such as Le Monde or the New York Times.”
