Capucine Chandon (born in Paris in 1993) is an independent photo/videographer who questions human beings' relationship with the natural world. During her studies in communication and journalism at IHECS (Brussels), she directed together with three other students a video report about a Native-American community who was relocated due to the environmental crisis in southern Louisiana. In 2017 she followed an international program in documentary photography and visual storytelling at the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX) in Aarhus, Denmark. She co-directed with Nicholas Pfosi Take Me As I Am, a short documentary-portrait of their friend CJ, which received an Award of Excellence at the Pictures of the Year International (POYi) photojournalism contest in 2018. Her latest project, Biophilia: a natural life is a photo essay telling the story of a Danish family living in harmony with nature. Produced in the long-term and in immersion, her projects bring inspiring stories to light in order to take a fresh and constructive look at the world.
