Amélie Berton is an art lover, a self-taught French photographer. She lives in Brussels, where she enjoys an inspiring multicultural environment. She begins photography to document and capture important events and personal moments. She specializes rapidly in portraiture, fascinated by human silhouettes and feelings. Feeling the desire to materialize her thoughts, she decides to explore the staging in her portraits by creating visual concepts. She discovers that photography is not only a tool for documenting the outside world, but also for expressing a more subjective and intimate inner world. She carefully poses her models, or herself in her many self-portraits, to express the emotion she wants to portray. She tells a story as part of a photograph, questioning the boundaries between dream and reality. In her work, she tends to blur the boundaries between painting and photography with the use of surrealist elements. To have this pictorial quality, she brushes her works with bright and daring color traits. It thus controls each contrast of the final result.
