laure d'utruy
I am a French photographer based in Berlin.

Formerly working and studying in finance and business in Paris, I moved to London in 2013 to undertake a Masters of Photojournalism and Documentary Photography (University of the Arts London). Photography shook up my plans and took a very important place in my life. I am always touched and overwhelmed by the evocative power of photography.

My work focuses mostly on documentary photography & portraiture. Among other projects, I have been working for two years on a long-term photography and video project, documenting the life of a single mother who decided to adopt only handicapped children affected by the Down’s syndrome. The documentary deals with the evolution of family structures, the adoption and the integration of handicapped people in the french society.

In 2015, I founded The Milk Collective with four other female photographers based around the world. The work of our photography collective aims at articulating stories linked with female issues, or giving a female stance on situations through photography.

As a photographer, I also like to explore and find the beauty and the uncanny in the daily life or while exploring countries. As a result, I produce film photography series showcased on my blog, experimenting with a more artistic side of my work.
