FRANÇOISE CHADELAS: PHOTOGRAPHY IS A TRIBUTE TO THE EARTH

"I try to transmit the poetry, the tenderness, that Nature inspires me. I like photos that create an expectation, that engage the viewer to imagine a story; these images where reality flickers, where the image becomes a dream. That’s why I sometimes use the double exposure technique."

FRANÇOISE CHADELAS: PHOTOGRAPHY IS A TRIBUTE TO THE EARTH

Parisian photographer, self-taught and passionate, I now spend most of my time behind the lens. I was an actress for a long time, but I found in photography, the most suitable medium to express myself and communicate my visions. I like using lights, contrasts, colours, playing with the elements. For me, photography is a tribute to the Earth, support for contemplation, the path to escape, the dream. I try to transmit the poetry, the tenderness, that Nature inspires me. I like photos that create an expectation, that engage the viewer to imagine a story; these images where reality flickers, where the image becomes a dream. That’s why I sometimes use the double exposure technique. I work in digital and film; I very often use a pinhole, precisely; this device allows me to avoid reality.
