Brigitte Bauer

Born in 1959 in Germany. Lives and works in Arles.
ENSP 1990 After having developed a virtual culture of the landscape in her first photographic series—which includes Montagne Sainte-Victoire and Ronds-Point—Brigitte Bauer’s visual research now focuses more on observing human attitudes and postures, whether they be in urban, rural or leisure settings. While still images remain at the heart of her process, her more recent projects include video footage. Bauer’s photographs are regularly exhibited and are included in numerous collections, both private and public, such as the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Deutsche Bank, UBS, and the Carnavalet museum in Paris... Her principal publications include Fragments d’Intimité (Images en Manœuvres, 2007), Fugue (Estuaire 2005), D’Allemagne (Images en Manœuvres 2003), Montagne Sainte-Victoire (Images en Manœuvres, 1999). Brigitte Bauer, who holds degrees from the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles (1990) and Aix-Marseille University (1995), teaches at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Nîmes.
