“The most important aspect of a photograph is the emotions it conveys.
Photography is about seeing beyond what is in front of our eyes, as if entering a new dimension where feelings and emotions reign”

Interested in all aspects of Photography from analogue to digital, Nathalie Mansey is constantly exploring and experimenting with older material and processes such as Silver gelatin, Hand-colouring, Photo-encaustic, Pinhole Photography, Cyanotype, Gum Bichromate and Lumen print.

Mastering and combining traditional and modern techniques allow Nathalie Mansey to connect past and present, mix reality and abstract, and enhance the timeless feeling and beauty of her subjects.

Born in France, Nathalie Mansey discovered Photography in high school, and has since spent most of her professional and leisure time improving her technical skills, and her artistic vision.
A passionate instructor, she created a complete black and white and darkroom photography course that she ran for several years. She also led a variety of photographic workshops on Vancouver Island.

She lives with her family in the Cowichan Valley, where she works as an Education Assistant.
