LOUISE CLAIRE WAGNER  |  ルイーズ=クレール・ワーグナー


ENG

Born and raised in Basel, Switzerland, Louise Claire Wagner is currently based in Tōkyō, Japan. 

She moved to Paris, France in 2012, where she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Social Sciences and a Master's degree in Urban Studies. It was during this time that she developed her passion for photography, leading to her first award and exhibitions. 

In 2014, she visited Japan and instantly fell in love with the country. She then focused her research on Japanese city planning, which gave her the opportunity to approach the culture and society, to study its architecture, to travel between Paris and Tōkyō, and to capture new images. 

Photography is for her a research in itself, a constant quest for the behind and the beyond; a combination of various elements - an interplay to the equilibrium between light and time.

スイス・バーゼル生まれ。2012年 大学入学のためパリに転居。社会科学と都市計画を専攻し卒業。パリ在住中に写真活動を開始、グループ展に参加し。2014年初来日。以来、パリと東京を幾度となく往復する。フィールドワークの現場とした東京では建築を学ぶかたわら、日本文化や社会に触れ、写真家としての新たな境地を切り拓くことになる。複数の線、面、光等のさまざまな「エレメント」によって表現される『Tōkyō Never Ending』は現在進行中である。
