Karine’s photographic work evolves between portraits and places. Her images are about people but also shapes and colors. Her recent works are part of an exhibition on the relationships between generations in France, as well as a book (text by Frédérick Casadesus) on the Diaconesses de Reuilly, a religious protestant community who opened theirs doors to a photographer and a journalist for the very first time.

Karine is always in search of expressions, sensitivity, lines, aesthetics, and lights, abstract shapes. She works for the magazine Reforme, Jim Le Pariser, associations and foundations. She recently exhibited at the Vivienne Art Gallery on Brazil’s Lençóis Maranhenses National Park and desert.

Neil Snape’s passion for photography had him cross the waters and settle in Paris, working in advertising and editorial photography since1991. He enjoys sharing his experience through teaching and hosting workshops across Europe.

Works in progress are based on graphic lines on figures, in search of the organic curves coming from static straight lines, circles, and grids. Some of his work has been exhibited, as can be seen in the Normal Magazine printed Hors Series. Neil has representation in Milan and Montreal.

Long-term work includes powerhouse clients such as Hermès, Cartier, and Sonia Rykiel. His editorial work ranges from Biba to Vogue, and almost every magazine in between. Now creating fine arts images and portraits, Neil comes back to his true love. The next chapter for him includes merging moving images with stills experience!

After graduating from the National School of Photography in Arles, David Balicki first worked as a documentary photographer developing his own projects, mainly focused on the transformation of industrial and suburban territories. Having also a great interest in the American culture, he travelled to the US to meet writers from the American West.

After showing these pictures to magazines he then started to work on commission for the French press (Libération, Le Monde, Aden, Le Point, L’Express, Elle, etc.) He has worked as a reportage and portrait photographer for the last twenty years and regularly collaborated with Les Inrockuptibles, a famous cultural French magazine for which he shot many portraits of authors in the fields of cinema, literature, music, theater, arts.

His portrait work has been exhibited at the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie in Arles, France. He recently decided to work at a different pace, focusing on personal projects. His most recent work includes a series of pictures dedicated to “ça ira”, a major play about the Révolution Française written by French stage director Joel Pommerat. A few months ago, he took a trip to South Africa, his latest documentary work, still in progress.
