Born in Paris in 1977, Camille Vivier started her photography career as an assistant in Purple magazine.
She’s collaborated with brands such as Stella McCartney, Martin Margiela, Cartier, Le Monde d’Hermès, and Isabel Marant amongst others. Her work has been exhibited in several galleries and institutions abroad as well as in France, including the CAPC Bordeaux (“Jean-Luc Blanc/Opera rock”), Espace Electra (“Le Voyage intérieur”), Galerie Kamel Mennour, Maison Européenne de la Photographie (“Enquête d’identité”), and during the Rencontres de la photographie d’Arles.
Girls lying on concrete disonaurs are facing obsolete neon signs.
Broken, knocked down, abstract, discarded, left there.
The girls are naked, in black and white, static. The neons are coloured, saturated like comic strip boxes.
Prehistoric monsters, mysterious beauties follow and merge with relics of modern cities. Metals, skins and stones collide.
Pages unattached slide and mix to deceive time and order.
