What photographer Marie Rime lacks in age and experience, she makes up for in enthusiasm and willingness to experiment. The young Swiss photographer has recently graduated with a BA in photography at ECAL, and she has her sights set on making a name for herself in the art world.

Rime tends to veer off the beaten path when it comes to her art, amassing an impressive portfolio of unconventional photographic work in the process. Her specialty is constructing costumes (such as head pieces and masks) out of household materials. Rimes aims to explore how our perception of power and status changes according to the types of masks, armor and costumes we wear in daily life.

Rime's body of work has not gone unnoticed; she has been shortlisted for the HyƩres photography festival, a true honor for any burgeoning photographer.
