Author in photography and sociology, Irene Jonas associates or dissociates these two disciplines according to the projects she develops.
It pursues a double approach. One, in black and white, close to the reportage and sociological documentary. The other in painted photographs, privileging the exploration of more intimate territories, especially those of childhood, family, and memory. If it is her personal story that she explores in the foreground, it is indeed a memory that is both collective and particular to each of us that she proposes to echo.
For several years she has participates in festivals or collective exhibitions in France and abroad. In 2018, she received the first prize unanimously from FotoMasterclass and exhibited during Fotofever.
