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 more and more involving hobby.
From 2014 to 2017, she went to photography courses and seminars and got more and more involved and passionate about it. She focusses mainly on urban spaces and the sense of alienation they elicit. Her approach is both anthropological and expressionist. She considers photography as a way to turn a documentary in art.
