Isabelle Armand is a documentary photographer and filmmaker established in NYC, after relocating from her native Paris in the 80s. A long-time visual storyteller, whose work evolved from fashion to art magazine to documentary, Armand is also the author of LEVON AND KENNEDY: MISSISSIPPI INNOCENCE PROJECT (PowerHouse Books, 2018), which tells the story of two wrongfully convicted men in rural Mississippi. Armand is currently working on a new photo book and her first documentary film in the same state. Glendora depicts the life of an isolated low-wealth black village in the Delta, where villagers stand firm in the face of adversity. Armand’s thoughtful works can be found in international private collections, and in museums. They have been featured both in national and international publications such as The Economist, The New York Times, and Art in America.
In 2017, Armand was awarded a grant from the SHOEN Foundation, in support of her book LEVON AND KENNEDY. In 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, she was the recipient of several grants from La Fondation CUVELIER and the SHOEN Foundation for the production of her current project, Glendora.
