The artist

As artistic director of the Citroën group for 13 years, 39 year-old Laurent Nivalle stood out from the crowd at Citroën. With the look of a rocker, permanently in jeans, he walks briskly along the corridors of the Vélisy Villacoublay site. Always on the go, this lover of the acoustic guitar has pursued his goals flawlessly. Instinct and a tendency to think outside the square have earned him a reputation as both the mascot of Citroën's style department and as a free agent. This is an ideal position for this artist, whose freedom is a major asset. Down to earth, full of humour, yet ambitious, Laurent Nivalle saunters through life with his 5D slung over his shoulder, capturing everything that moves… Today, he produces all of the images for the Citroën Style department, as well as the marketing films for the DS and Citroën trademarks… He is making his own… mark!His clear, personal and uncompromising work makes him one of the most coveted of photographers, not only within the automobile sector, but also in the world of haute couture and prêt à porter. His unique brand of colour rendering is his trademark, as demonstrated again here in this superb Le Mans Classic series.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

The aficionados of luxury cars, nostalgic for a certain idea of the passing of time, meet every two years. They meet for the wildly romantic event Le Mans Classic*, organised by Patrick Peter (alias Peter Auto). This is a race that Laurent Nivalle has lent his very personal touch to on two occasions: in 2010, to follow the concept car Survolt for Citroën, then in 2012 for Richard Mille. He chose to secure this time travel using soft tones, as though worn by time... This series is highly photogenic, in the '70s spirit that first made Laurent Nivalle known to a wide audience. * On the 24-hour circuit at Le Mans (13.65 km), professionals holding the FIA International Competition licence raced one after the other on six plateaus (from 1923 to 1979).

DAMIEN DUFRESNE

As Damien Dufresne says himself: "I let my hands do the talking". His approach is totally new in that it's at the crossroads of makeup, body art, artistic direction and photography. The resulting complexity, technicality and beauty are impressive. Damien Dufresne, a make-up arti...
