Bio

Born in 1979 in Paris, Olivier Valsecchi uses photography as a medium to incarnate the emotions of his psyché. Directing nude models like a conductor, he orchestrates fantasmagorical images where bodies, outlined in dramatic chiaroscuro, are deprived of gender or identity to be merely used as elements of a narrative. His first series "Dust" (2009) earned him international acclaim, Hasselblad Masters Award - Fine Art category in 2012 as well as many exhibitions around the world. His next series Klecksography (2012) and Drifting (2014) confirmed a sophisticated sense of light and a particular mix of aesthetics, bizarre and emotion. Valsecchi is now considered as one of the most notable new representatives of contemporary nude photography. The beauty and expressiveness of the human body is magnetic in his mystical compositions. His works center around the themes of cycles, birth, death, rebirth.
