About sergine laloux
Sergine’s career history can be divided in distinct periods.
After greco-latin studies in High School, she started her career as a professional dancer for the "Ballet du XXème siècle" - Maurice Béjart’s dance company -, Ballet des Flandres, Théâtre Chorégraphique de Rennes, Ballet de Nancy, Scapino Ballet, Ballet de Bonn and Tanit Dance Theatre.
During all her dance years, photography plays a very important role. This is how after a workshop in China with Guy Le Querrec from the Magnum photo agency, she naturally went from dancing stage to picturing shows and reportage photography.
Her very first photo documentary, "Regards d’Afrique", has been awarded at the Leica International Competition- black and white fascination-. Several topics: "Berlin Wall fall 1989-1999-2009", "Gypsy life in the Alentejo", "From earth to bronze", 3 reportages in Tibet: "Losar festival in Labrang", "Acupuncture for all" and "In the heart of the Tibetan Buddhism", a work on jazz "Corps Accord"... All have been presented in various exhibits and publications.
As an extension of her first passion and during all these years, she continued photographing dance and especially Michèle Noiret’s work (Book published in 2009).
"Sergine Laloux photographs without any pathos nor voyeurism, with picture staging mastery and a real feel for movement and composition that are probably not unrelated to her first passion". Jean-Marie Wynants (le Soir)
