Françoise Lerusse is a Belgian photographer living between Brussels, London and the South of France. After being graduated at Liège University in French literature, she turned to radio creation, TV journalism and film documentary. She worked for public radio and television in Belgium before joining leading advertising agencies as a copywriter, signing campaigns that received different awards. During those years, she approached photography through collaborations with advertising photographers and as a personal hobby.
From 2014 to 2017, she attended photography courses and seminars and got more and more involved. She focusses for a part on urban spaces and the sense of alienation they elicit, turning documentary into a form of self expression. On another part she questions the medium itself with a philosophical or anthropological point of view.
