Gilles Saussier

Born 1965 in Suresnes, France.
Lives and works between Arles and Les Andelys, France.
Gilles Saussier is a photographer who teaches at the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in Arles and works at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, where he runs a workshop dedicated to the photographic practice of researchers. His documentary approach is centred on editorial practice, experimentation with the text-image relationship, and the archaeological rereading of events and works in relation to his body of photography; it takes on the photographic act as a performative and collaborative act between conceptualism, documentary tradition and anthropology.
