Franco-Mexican photographer Pia Elizondo has lived in Paris for 20 years. Her dark, poetic work has been exhibited in Spain, France, Norway, Switzerland, England, the United States and Latin America. She uses black and white for her personal work, which focuses mainly on memory and a-temporality. Since 2003, she has received several grants from Mexico’s Ministry of Culture to produce personal projects, the most important of which are “Los pasos de la memoria”, “Entre deux”, “Songe d’oubli” and “The Fall”. All of them have been published as books. Since 2007, she has collaborated on various projects with the Galerie Neg-Pos. She has taught in the continuing education department at the ENSP Louis Lumière in Paris. Her work is distributed by the VU agency.
