Romane Iskaria is a French photographer and visual artist based in Brussels. Her approach to photography is both documentary and fictional. She works on long term photographic investigations, in order to bring to light the voices of forgotten people and tell their stories. Her artistic work is mainly based on the quest for origins in relation to a lost territory. Romane collects memories and evokes the imaginary through photography, video, text and sound to create installations of collective memory. Romane was born in La Ciotat, France in 1997. At the age of 18, she entered the School of Fine Arts of Marseille (ESADMM) from which she graduated in 2018 with a DNA with honors. Afterwards, she completed an international exchange program at the University of Laval's School of Visual Arts in Quebec City, Canada. She continues her studies in Master of Photography at ENSAV La Cambre in Brussels, Belgium where she will graduate in 2022.

Her work has been shown in group and solo exhibitions in France and internationally: Cent-Quatre in Paris, Arles France, Art-Brussel-off, Washington D-C USA, French Consulate in Armenia, Hangar Art Center in Brussels, Tick-Tack gallery in Antwerp. His work has recently been published in Polka-Magazine, Fisheye, Art Viewer, Scandale Project. Romane was selected for the Polka Magazine & Kickstarter call for projects for the creation and support of an artist's book for Assyrians, which is also a winner of the Belgian Photo Books selection that was shown at Rencontres d'Arles in France in July 2022.
