CV & BIO

Born in Belgium in 1989, Lionel Jusseret is a documentary photographer. His works, internationally recognized and rewarded, combine an anthropological gaze with a personal aesthetic of color. After finishing his studies at INSAS in 2012, a Belgian film school, he photographed children with autism in the French association J’interviendrais. In the search for unpredictable images, Jusseret works in the intimacy of his subject. After eight years of immersion, he finished his first series Kinderszenen and published it at Loco edition in 2020.

Recently, he works in a retirement home to get closer to seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and create the new serie Les Impatientes. A new book published by Loco will be released in June 2022.

Lionel Jusseret currently lives in Bruxelles.
