In a non distant future uncles will be aunts, blue will be pink, and the whole concept of gender will melt down.
Author: I’m a French fashion and fine art photographer known for my distinctive color palette and my militant engagement in the defense of minorities. My works feature female protagonists (most of from the LGBTQ+ and black community) and challenge social, gender, racial and aesthetic norms that harm them. As a means to awake my audience of 90 000+ followers from media numbness I use contrast, saturated colors and provocation.
My development as an artist came through theater then in 2015 I started to create a world through a lens. I try not to define myself, but rather the visual universe into which I integrate the different types of projects I am working on: fine art, fashion and celebrity. The main pillars of this universe are the non-conventional, yet pleasing, combination of saturated, non-primary colors, stylized sets, props and compositions, provocative messages, glam-cool styling, and models with unusual beauty.
I do not follow processes. My ideas come instinctively in form of images that pop up in my head in the shower, in bed or on the street, in a theater or while browsing social media. The ideas then go through a little curating engine in my head which follows the aesthetics of a few virtual masters such as Rene Magritte, Roy Andersson, Bob Wilson, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Miles Aldridge.
My works primarily feature female protagonists, most from the LGBTQ+ and black communities in Brazil, the US and Europe. My aim in photography is to challenge via visual allegories the dogmatic concepts of normalcy, and particularly those very social, gender, racial and aesthetic norms that harm women and minorities. As a means to awake my audience (who views my works on instagram, magazines, fairs and galleries) from media numbness I work with eccentric, free, empowered characters and use contrast, saturated colors and provocation.
