Raised in Paris in a conventional family, Marylise Vigneau developed an early taste for peeping through keyholes and climbing walls. She studied Comparative Literature at the Sorbonne in Paris, and her thesis was about cities as characters in Russian and Central-European novels. Her education is essentially literary, but photography became her language during her life’s journey.She is documenting life mainly in Asia focusing on cities and on what time, development, or isolation does to them.She likes to play with opposites: absence and presence, emptiness and fullness, isolation and multitude, fondness and irony, the very near and the far away. The inner and the strange. In October 2015, she joined the Anzenberger Agency in Vienna. (Photo shot in Bukhara, Uzbekistan, 2013. Photo sponsors: Inza Walston and Blair Both.)
