FLORENCE GOUPIL
Photographing the invisible.
Florence Goupil is a photographer from a French/Peruvian nationality. She was born on the 16 of July 1990 in Lima, Peru as descendent from a Quechua mother and French father. Florence grew up in Lima and at age of twenty she moved to France to finish her studies in the Fine Art School of Rennes and later at the University of Rennes 2.
All her life she found herself in a special position in between two cultures. Looking for her own identity she created a profound interest in the ancestral roots of the Latin America territory. In her photography style you can see her anthropological inclination. For Florence photography is the encounter of the visible and the invisible, as described by the poet Paul Éluard.
Today she works as an independent photographer in Peru. She is specialized in portrait and documentary photography, making visual archives of the ancient cultures of Latin America. In the last year she has been recognized in varies times as an emerging photographer. 
Florence Goupil won the 3rd Place in the Portrait category of Sinchi Foundation Photo Contest with her picture of Julian at the sacred mountain of Ausangate. She is a Getty Images contributor and is part of the GirlGaze community.
