Internationally renowned and critically respected, Valérie Belin is perhaps the most celebrated French photographer working today. Her monumental works explore issues of surface, identity and artificiality. In her photographs, Belin utilises the human form as a powerful vessel to project or subvert meaning. She has photographed mannequins and models on equal terms, with the questioning of reality a central thread that weaves throughout her oeuvre.
In this interview, Valérie Belin discusses her work for her 2018 exhibition, Photographs of Women, at Huxley-Parlour gallery.
