Freeing her models from their shackles, their shyness, their differences, their complexes, their pain, their discomfort and even their diseases, Moselle hones her gift and captures true moments of complicity, happiness, beauty, and the triviality of life by bringing her subjects into worlds she creates by giving magic to sordid surroundings.

“Art in all its forms has always seemed to be an extension of me. Often attracted to the melancholic, shy or discreet, I was always able to feel the suffering generated by others and this altruism will never leave me again.”

She later mastered her artistic medium with photography. At 18 years old, she put her artistic growth on hold to give birth to her first daughter. She is now a mother of three with her soulmate. As she revisited her passion for photography, her talent was quickly recognized. She works professionally documenting large-scale events, works with fashion publications such as Manor, often works with French television journalist weddings, and consistently works on her personal projects. She regularly exhibits her work in galleries throughout France, where she lives and works. She plans to explore and bring her talents to Los Angeles in Spring 2015.
