Margeaux Walter uses photography, video, and lenticulars to create meticulously staged social satires. She frequently draws on personal experiences and stories. Furthermore, her works are intimate explorations of daily life on a familial, social, and personal level.
Walter plays with the border between reality and fantasy. Each piece is built from multiple images, real photographs, scale models, and studio portraits. She replicates the visual imagery that we constantly see in the media and advertising.
Using lenticulars, each piece allows the viewer to move along with the images. They therefore allow the viewer to immerse themselves in the embarrassment, loneliness, laughter, and uncanny moments that are present both in these images, and in every day life.
Walter was born in Seattle, Washington and currently works and resides in New York City. She studied at the Maine Photographic Workshops, Tisch School of the Arts (NYU), and Hunter College. Her works have been exhibited in museums and private collections across the country. They have also been featured in publications including The New York Times, New York Post, Seattle Times, Boston Globe and Scene Magazine.
