Kate Fichard

I am a young photographer of 25 years old, french, born in Paris with english origins.

After my baccalaureate, I had the opportunity to assist a photographer Béatrice Amagat
for a photographic report in Egypt. This experience has been decisive in my decision
to start photographic studies.
After two first years at the MJM photographic school in Paris, I went to La Cambre in
Bruxelles, Belgium for one year. I then assisted Vincent Fournier and Mario Palmieri
from the agency Carole Lambert in Bruxelles. I also had the opportunyity to make several
interships at Magnum (press agency), at the Petit Oiseau Va Sortir (photo studio)
and at Janvier (retouching agency).
I finally decided to go to Ecal in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I have graduated my
bachelor in june 2012. During that period I have assisted Paolo Roversi for one and a
half year.

In 2011, I have been the laureate of the Deauville festival Planche(s) Contact which
exhibited my work in both 2011 and 2012. I also won the «coup de coeur» price of
the SFR Jeunes Talents which gave me the opportunity to exhibit at Paris Photo in the
Grand Palais in november 2012.

Since september 2012, I started working as a professional photographer for magazines
such as Technikart, ELLE, Obsession and the Financial Time. I also shot adversting
campaigns for Tarian eye’s wear, along with other personal projects.

As a hearing less girl, I started to learn sign language to realise the Ouïdire project two
years ago.

From then I started to dedicate my work to body language.
