Presentation

Born in 1963, FLORE is a French-Spanish photographer artist currently living in Paris. After working for ten years in the national press, she now devotes herself exclusively to her personal work. Winner of the Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière Photography Prize in partnership with the Academy of Fine Arts in 2018, she produces her work over long timespans, usually through voyages. Her works have been acquired and exhibited in various prestigious institutions such as the Musée du Petit Palais, the BnF, the MMP+ in Marrakech or the Mémorial de Rivesaltes.

Through refined technical interventions in the darkroom, like an alchemist herself, FLORE shapes as much as she restores the world that unfolds before her eyes to make unique images that move away from conventional photography, creating a fusion between content and form.
She questions the photographic medium by switching with ease from the oldest techniques such as platinum-palladium or cyanotype, to the most modern, sometimes mixing them and physically intervening on the prints with wax, gold or pigments.
FLORE is totally committed to the quest for memory and makes “non-sensational" images that attempt to recreate truth in place of a reality that is gradually fading away.
She defines her poetic and atemporal universe as a political act, which is her way of positioning herself in front of the “beam of darkness that comes from her time", as G. Agamben says.
Far from nostalgia, her work tinged with melancholy questions the status of the image in our contemporary societies and tries to propose an alternative to the torments of the world by inviting the spectator to enter her poetic world.
Because in revolt is offered hope, because memories are opposed to life, because the ephemeral of the anecdote is opposed to thought, because feeling is opposed to the experience of the visible, the work of FLORE stands out in its singularity.
