Pauline was born and raised in Besançon, a quiet provincial town in the eastern part of France. As she grew up, she quickly felt locked in and felt the need to expand her horizon. Between then and now, for professional and personal purposes, she has travelled to many countries, including countries affecting by conflicts. She confirmed her strong desire to pursue her photography work after a stay in Cambodia where she got the opportunity to learn more about photography. Since then, her camera never left her. Currently based in New York, every place where she works and lives represents a new field of investigation for her photo work.
