Eugénie Baccot is a freelance French author and photographer. Her particular approach to photography and writing focalizes the strong narrative presence of pure documentary, intensely human, putting her subjects before all, both in France and abroad.
Conducted over long lengths of time, Eugénie's interest in the other is never distinct from his/her surrounding milieu. She devotes several months, even years of work and reflection to carry out her projects. Time is an essential element to her approach; Eugénie firmly believes that to document the lives of others, one must first take the time to truly know them.
Boasting a strong aesthetic, her photographic prints are committed somewhere halfway between photojournalism and fine art photography. She aspires to document life from a humanistic angle so to reveal the overlooked beauty of the world around us.
Eugénie engages in her own personal photographic and editorial projects. She works often in East Africa, notably Uganda, and collaborates regularly with daily journals and magazines.
She has published in Le Monde, PARIS Match, Le Monde des Religions, Days Japan, VSD, Causette, L'Express, StudioCineLive, Ca M'intéresse, Socialter, L'Obs. as well as in various political publications.
Eugénie is represented by the collective Divergence Images.
