In the 1990s, Isabelle Le Minh abandoned a job as a patent engineer in Berlin to devote herself to photography. Graduate of the National School of Photography in Arles in 1996, she teaches photography at the School of Fine Arts in Rouen and also develops a curatorial activity. Isabelle Le Minh does not apprehend photography as a means to represent the world: it is the technique itself, its objects, its uses, its history as well as its theoretical foundations that interest her. Most often working through associations of ideas, the artist questions the nature and materiality of images, the status of the artist and the notion of originality in a standardized world where the image proliferates. Her works have been presented in major occasions in France and abroad: Paris Photo; Month of Photography (Montreal); Rencontres d'Arles; Kehrer Gallery (Berlin); Museum of Contemporary Art (Krakow); Frac Normandie Rouen; Photographic Center of Île-de-France; the red house (Paris); Dorfman Projects (New York); S.M.A.K. (Ghent) ... She has been represented since 2011 by Christophe Gaillard gallery (Paris).
