DAY 151About this photograph
A French photographer based in Paris, from the start of her career Juliette Jourdain has specialised in the art of portraiture. Her portfolio attests to a highly personal vision of photography and to her great aptitude for staging, which she borrows from the likes of the extravagances of singer Lady Gaga, director Tim Burton, or artist Cindy Sherman. Through the construction of surrealist sets, her self-portraits focus on the creation of characters oscillating between quirkiness and elegance and question the representation of women in contemporary society.Read more Read less

Juliette Jourdain is a young French photographer based in Paris. After three years of photo studies at l'EFET, she started a career as an independent professional. Specialising in the art of the portrait, her portfolio subsequently testified to her great aptitude for staging. In a meticulously arranged studio set, her models give her their all in quirky and sophisticated poses. Her inspirations are numerous (fashion photography, cinema, painting) but are above all derived from drawing, which she has practised since she was very young, and thanks to which she enjoys and has become used to using her imagination. Her work published recently in Photo magazine was exhibited at the Rencontres d'Arles in July 2014 as well as at exhibitions in Lyon and Paris in 2015.
