In 2006, Laure Bernard turned 180 degrees, leaving her comfortable job in marketing in order to dedicate herself solely to photography. Her passion for music would initially lead her to work for several labels, in addition to KEITH magazine (for which she would, over an extended period contribute fashion editorials and artist portraits). Gradually she would move deeper into fashion and publicity campaigns, regularly collaborating with ELLE magazine in Paris and Bangkok, and for L’OFFICIEL France and Morocco. She surveys the world from other angles.
Her first book, Build Me Up, acclaimed upon its publication in 2013, is the fruit of a six-year research expedition and total immersion in the world of boxing, ranging from Thailand to Cameron, by way of India, France and Turkey. Build Me Up, published by Editions Verlhac, was prefaced and presented by Agnès b.
The book received wide and undisputed acclaim from French media: ELLE, Keith, Réponse Photo, L’Equipe Mag, La Croix, Tétu, 20 Minutes, Radio Nova, France Culture.
She s also added to her work some film directing since 2008 for fashion in short film, music videos and advertising.
Laure Bernard is 40. She lives and works in Paris.
