Catherine Balet is a talented photographer and artist currently based in Paris, France. In her series entitled Strangers in the Light, Catherine, who trained as a painter, confronts two seemingly paradoxical modern realities: hyper-communication and the profound solitude in which we can find ourselves in our daily lives. Balet was graduated at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and worked as a painter before turning to photography with an artistic approach to sociological issues. “Strangers in the Light” explores the dominance of media screens in contemporary life, from a connected family gathering to a online confessional. Her images also refer to the narcissistic self-awareness expressed on social networks and the new approach to quick, light mobile photography that affects our visual culture.
