After working in a very masculine environment for years, Cécile Plaisance left the world of Finance to become a full time photographer. Her work has been exhibited in a number of galleries worldwide: The Unit London in London, Envie d’art in Paris, Samuel Owen Gallery in the Connecticut, Young Gallery in Knokke and United Gallery in New York. She has also shown in numerous International Art Fairs in NY, Miami, Singapore, Hong Kong, Brussels and Paris.
A graduate in Economics and Commerce, Cécile Plaisance is married with children. After working for 10 years in the European markets, then with her husband in the IT sector, she is now working on her art alone and unaided. The term 'work' is not a neutral one, since every one of her images is the fruit of tens of hours of digital manipulation, to which should be added make-up, styling and lighting, as well as the superimposition of images that provides these photos with life, one of the key factors in their originality. Her prints call out to the spectator. They make us think, they also make us dream, freeing the mind and the imagination. It is in childhood that we have most need of imagination; Barbie dolls are and remain a game of childhood.
