Born in 1953 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Yves Gellie was born in Bordeaux, France, in 1953.

After his medical studies at the Bordeaux II University, Yves Gellie practiced the tropical medicine for two years in Gabon before deciding to devote itself to photography.

In 1981, he started his new career as a photographer with a first series on a cocaine network in Colombia, followed by a story on the Ogaden war in Somalia. He obtains a World Press Award for a project on Oman in 1988. His work on Saudi Arabia brought him the prize of the Society of Publication Designer's and the Merit Award in 2003.

The last 15 years, he developed a work plastic work that can be placed between documentary and contemporary art. He explores the ambiguous relationship between photographs and reality and experiments with the fictional power of images.

Through his photographs, he shows us the link that can unite the real world and the power of images. He takes part regularly in shows in France and abroad.
