Alone, in my world.
"I'm French with German, Italian and Belgian origins. In a way, I can say that I embody the diversity of European cultures. For this reason, I realized an autobio-photographic series on the theme: What is it to be French? Thus, by my culture, my languages, and my education, I try to determine my nature, which makes me to be "French". In Germany, it's said of France that "it is the country where wine and honey flow." France represents freedom and has a wealth of landscapes in these different regions. In my photographs, France is represented as a landscape decor, that I translate in geometry, colors, and with stagings of light. In addition, I'm staging myself in nature, but in order to achieve an impression of universality. Finally, I have the will to create an "emotional and romantic atmosphere."
Author: Jennifer Orhélys has always been attracted to the world of art, writing, poetry, music and fashion. With a shy nature the dreamy little girl looks and observes the world around her.
This forms her fascination for the art of the self-portrait that will guide her into photography a few years later. A discipline which she truly began to practice as part of its Art studies at the prestigious Sorbonne in Paris, where she studies currently l'Esthétique du Cinéma.
Initially she wanted to be a researcher in biology, but this burning passion for art pushed her to leave her region and discover a real passion in screenwriting and image analysis in Cinema in the Nanterre University. The following year she decided to give substance to her world view by focusing on photography, an artistic expression in which she seems to fully develop.
Back in her hometown, she pursued her studies at the Beaux Arts and the practice of intensive painting for four years. It was in 2007 that she decided to indulge in her favourite medium, photography.
In her self-portraits, Orhélys shares her world full of magic appearance. By using her own face in dozens of productions, her portfolio gives us over a thousand different women whose forthcoming, filled with poetry, take us very far in sharing with us her bucolic world, dreamlike and sensitive.
The Award winning young French photographer has exhibited in many art galleries around the world. By becoming both her own muse and the protagonist of a fascinating world, her images have also conquered the fashion world with many publications in prestigious magazines as well as participating in numerous festivals and international events.
