Born in 1971 in the Netherlands, French photographer Martial Lenoir now lives in Paris. A fashion photographer, he is also a great nude portraitist and regularly works with lingerie houses. He discovered photography at thirty, by chance, and thus bought his first camera, a Mamiya RB67, which he continues to use. Graduating in 2003 from the École Supérieure de Photographie et d'Audiovisuel (EFET), he soon became an assistant at Studio Daguerre to major fashion and still life photographers such as Nacer Messili, Gérard Harten and Francis Hammond. Martial Lenoir has won numerous awards, including that of the Festival Européen de la Photo de Nu in Arles, in 2009, and the Prix Argentique Ilford in 2011. His erotic stagings have been sold at Drouot and are regularly shown in Paris, Arles, Saint-Étienne, Bayonne, and Tokyo. The artist distinguished himself through two magnificent series, The Rat Hole and Reflections of Chaos, with certain images from these entering the YellowKorner collections.
