Bénédicte Lacorre

Submission from Strasbourg, Photographer


Bénédicte is based in Strasbourg, France. She became interested in photography at age 16 and went on to study art. She is naturally drawn to landscapes, colors and objects. Bénédicte believes art helps her “love reality,” though she also feels it can be “a kind of malediction".
