Sophie Chivet

biography


Sophie Chivet’s passion for architecture can be found in every single one of her photographs.

Strongly outlined by pure structures, her portraits are like her visions of buildings or the fine details in clothing or animals. The resulting effect is filled with finesse. Whether working in black and white or colour, with rectangle or square format, she commits her work to a sharp light and a pure layout.

Escaping the emptiness of easy effects, she rigorously plays with a notion perfectly derived from tasteful classicism.
