​Born in Boulogne-Billancourt, France in 1964, Valérie Belin lives and works in Paris, France.

Regarded as one of the best photographic artists of her generation, Valérie Belin came to prominence thanks to her emblematic Mannequins series in 2003.

She has been involved in major monographic exhibitions of international standing, such as those at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) in Paris and the Musée de L’Élysées in Lausanne in 2008, as well as the one at the Huis Marseille Museum in 2007, and the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow in 2013.

In 2008, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris invited Valérie Belin as part of the exhibition ‘Correspondance: Belin / Manet’, where her Corbeilles (baskets of fruit) were involved in a dialogue with Manet’s still lifes.
