BLIND SILENCE I
The photographs are carefully packaged in order to ensure their optimal protection during transport.
Damien Dufresne is an unconventional photographer: after building a reputation in the fields of cosmetics and advertising, working as an art photographer enables him to forget the rules of the fashion world. … 'Art photography provides me with real freedom; my imagination has free reign. I do not wish to be controversial but I stop at nothing. I follow my instinct. I create images that are meaningful and speak to me…’ … 'Drawing, painting and photography are a means of expression for me, to tell stories without the use of words, a form of language, a different way of communicating’… … ‘The technique is not an end in itself but a means of supporting creativity…emotion is the most important thing to me’ …. His strength: creativity. His uniqueness : texture and colour. His motivation: passion. Damien Dufresne has worked in Paris, Seoul, Milan, New York and Tokyo. He currently lives in Shanghai.
