Amélie Losier was born in 1976 in Versailles, France. She studied german literature and civilization in Paris, France and Berlin, Germany, had classes at École des Beaux Arts in Paris and studied documentary photography with Arno Fischer at the Photography School am Schiffbauerdamm in Berlin.
Street photography, portrait-reportages and multimedia story-telling are her main focus. She is most interested in photographing people in their self-contained world. By trying to become inconspicuous with her small format pictures, and sometimes with recorded sounds, she shows people who, because of their situation or activities, take distance from a society or illustrate a small part of a certain society.
Amélie Losier is now living and working as a freelance photographer in Berlin and Paris on her own projects, for newspapers and magazines and for culture institutions. She was 2005 awardee of the Academy of Arts in Berlin and she is teaching since 2004 in photo workshops for children and young people for the Academy of fine Arts Berlin. She had already several solo and group exhibitions and some of her works were published in books.
