Heritage is a set of portraits in the style of traditional still lives that explore Marie's background as a French woman with Middle Eastern origins. She uses objects carried from different traditions and rites to cover the identity of the subject, a nod to themes such as racism, mixed race relationships, war and ancestry.

From the series Heritage
Marie Hudelot was born in Toulon in 1981. After studying cinema she enrolled at the Université Paris 8 to study Photography and Multimedia. Fuelled by autobiographical elements, her work questions notions of identity and cultural affiliations. She constructs symbolic portraits inspired by her family’s heritage and culture, divided between France and Algeria. Hudelot’s work was recently exhibited in Paris in her first solo show and has been presented at European festivals such as Circulations in Paris, Econtros Da Imagen in Portugal and Fotofestival in Poland.
