Brussels based Maëlle André traveled all over the world and totally fell in love with the United States, especially California: “- The landscapes, the light, the personalities I came across; everything is so amazing over there! It fits perfectly in my rock/blues/retro/Tarantino world and I think about it every day. In photography, I truly admire the work of Guy Bourdin and Neil Krug. I also want to add some photographers I met scavaging the web: Rockie Nolan, Caitlin Bellah, Lauren Withrow and many many more.”
We’ve seen her portfolio and it’s truly stunning, but how did it all start for Maëlle? “- Actually when I studied graphic communication I was really bored and decided to enter a photo contest back in 2008. I liked it so much that I discontinued my other projects and focused entirely on photography. But hey, it’s true: I never had any technical course.”
“- My first real project was for a band called Medi (on the Parisien label), the album is due to be released on January. I notice various blogs and webzines are picking up interest in me, I hope that will help me increase my profile a bit. Last month I also did an exposition in a photo gallery in Brussels. At this point I’m working on a forthcoming publication for a fashion magazine, yet another exhibition in Brussels and I have some interest from various musicians as well. The best is yet to come!”
We’re confident to say we will definitely hear more about Maëlle André.
