Cassandre Lafon is a filmmaker and photographer based in Paris. She is born in 1995 in Lyon. She majored in fine arts at École supérieure d'Art et de Design in Saint-Étienne, France, and discovered 60s-70s diary film. These works, along with footage from her mother’s home video, have shaped her aesthetic and inspired her own film projects.

There is an intimacy to the way she approaches filming whatever is around her. Lafon’s use of overzoom present in a personal way the daily elements of life.Her work can be seen as a visual poem. Instead the images are picked and gathered to make a composition she calls a “
bouquet d’images”. 

To allow the bouquet of images to fully bloom, Lafon has worked with multidisciplinary designer Andry Adolphe, who co-runs the visual project Floregraphies, and with musicians like Tasho Ishi. In addition to her own projects, commissioned works also can show Lafon's diverse approaches translated into fashion image and music video. Her movies and photos series have been shown in art venues in France (Paris, Saint-Étienne) and Japan (Tokyo), media arts festivals (Canada) and in clothing stores in the United States (New York) and Japan (Tokyo).
