Since 2004, photographer and multimedia artist Marc Lathuillière has developed a deconstructive approach to documentary photography. Shaped by his studies in Political Sciences, his works often show strong anthropological contents, exploring the representation of contemporary societies in their relationship to time and environment. Interventions in the images and in their reading, installations, performances and texts are used to probe cultural boundaries as well as the limits of representation. At the origin of this approach, his main series Musée national, has seen him shooting the portrait of about a thousand French people wearing the same mask for the last 15 years.


His work has been shown in important exhibitions in France and abroad: Sorbonne ArtGallery (2020), Bangkok Photo and Photoszene in Cologne (2018), Le Creux de l’enfer art center (Thiers) for the Lyon Biennale, La Friche La Belle de Mai with anthropologist Marc Augé in Marseille, Paris Photo, the Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and French Landscapes at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) (2017), the Mulhouse Photography Biennale (2016), Austerlitz Station in Paris (2015), Ithaque in four museums of La Rochelle (2012), Museum Siam in Bangkok (2011), Palais de Tokyo and French May in Hong Kong (2004).


Also developing a writing practice, he regularly collaborates with authors. In 2014, he curated a double exhibition for the Month of Photography in Paris with Michel Houellebecq, who wrote the foreword of his second photo book, Musée national (La Martinière). Represented by Galerie Binome (Paris), this work is featured in important collections such as the BnF, the Neuflize Vie Foundation, the French Museum of Photography, the Vera Michalski collection and the FRAC Auvergne.
