Marseille-based photographer Alexa Brunet: self-portray as a man

Where do you originally come from and why and when did you move to Marseille?
I am from Angers in the Loire Valley, I studied photography in Arles so I decided to move to Marseille after my diploma in 2002 and I stayed here.

Is Marseille a good place for creative people?
Yes, I think it is because it is a big mix of different cultures and the associative scene is very strong, lots of things are going on in the art scene especially in theater. But sometimes there are lots of initiatives but they don‘ t get realized – I mean there` s lots of chatting but few realizations.

How would you describe the city?
Laid-back, messy, blue, easy-going and harsh also.

What are the main problems of Marseille?
Dirt, rubbish, lack of dialogue for city affairs like transport (still no biking way!), corruption.

In which ways has Marseille changed during the years you have spent living here?
Poor areas have been „cleaned up“ to make them attractive for new people with higher standards like the „Rue de la Republique“, the tram has been made but with not so much difference from the metro network, the city looks generally renewed.
