BIO

I'm an independent photographer based in Luxembourg.

After graduating with distinction from the prestigious school of photography Le 75 in Brussels, I continued my studies in Fine Arts at the University of Strasbourg, where I accomplished a Masters degree in 2005.
I was given a talent award by the Centre National de l’ Audiovisuel (CNA) in 2001, followed by the publication of my monographic work Reflections. I exhibited my works in Europe, the United States, India and China.

I'm living and working in Steinsel / Luxembourg.

Feel free to check out my commercial website: Arthur & Mary

By the way, I'm a proud mother of two.
