Marie Plaissay was born and raised in New York City. While exploring a black and white film class at the age of seventeen, Plaissay fell in love with photography. With the encouragement of her teacher, a SCAD alumna, she applied to the Savannah College of Art and Design. Plaissay frequently works with fashion photography, but with a dramatic twist. She enjoys playing with natural light and exploring how this effects the human form. She is currently a senior here at SCAD working on her B.F.A. in photography.
