Isabeau de Rouffignac has always gone for the Far East. A book given about India while a teenager, four siblings, Cambodian refugees, welcomed into the family home were two of these decisive elements.
Along with her job as a graphic designer, she photographs. Several long journeys over a decade to vibrate in unison with these distant lives, to catch a movement, a moment, a rite, a relationship. Documentary photography is no photography by chance. Isabeau meets, learns languages, maintains contacts, returns and participates.
Nevertheless, her pictures are self-sufficient, capturing those fleeting moments to signify an here and now in a perpetual movement, the quest or the course of a life, one like that of Deeparam, postman of the desert or of these Akha people , whom pictures are visible on this web site.& nbsp;
