Romanian photographer Felicia Simion won the Louis Roederer Foundation’s First Young Talents Prize Talents. She received € 3,000. She will be in residence at the next Planche(s) Contact festival as well as in the Champagne-based mansion of the firm in Reims.
Felicia Simion is only 23 years old. She graduated from the photographic and video department of the National School of Arts in Bucharest in 2016. Her work shows portraits in a surrealistic way. She plays with landscapes, setting up poetic situation, where detail take an absurd importance thanks to the montages and its compositions. She is now continuing her study with a specialization in Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology.
Since 2009, the Louis Roederer Foundation has been supporting the Planche(s) Contact de Deauville festival. This year, five photographers were invited to show their work at the end of the contest. Felicia Simion is the very first winner of this newly contest.
