Our photographers

Marie de La Ville Baugè

She is young artist and photographer, grew up in France, worked in Cambodia, Sudan and Russia where she is now living and painting.

As a child she was surrounded by artists as her grand-mother Elisabeth de La Mauvinière, grand-father Jean Deville, her aunt and her mother were painters or engravers.

Her family inspired her interest in fine art which has been then enriched by her travel around the world. Marie is capturing her own inward journey through bold, colorful expression—whether figuratively or abstractly.
