Zoe Cassavetes, film maker and photographer, was born in Los Angeles and grew up in New York. Zoe is inspired by peoples faces. Beauty is not what she is mainly looking for from them: she tries above all to read their life, their past. A face which tells a story always attracts her.

She photographs as she films indifferently in color or black & white as long as shadows and lights are present. According to her, the goal of those two medium are the same:  her photographs, she says, look like pictures taken from a movie. She expresses with a certain sense of humor her preference for photography which allows her, contrary in cinema, to get the result almost quickly.
