Flore is a Franco-Spanish artist photographer. Winner of the Nadar Prize (2020), the Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière Prize - Académie des Beaux-Arts (2018), the Photofolies Prize, city of Rodez (1998) and finalist for the Swiss Life Prize for four hands (2020) and the Hariban Award (2017), she produced long-term series, often during trips. Several monographs have been published on his work by Editions Contrejour, André Frère, Maison CF and Postcart Italy. 

In Deauville, as part of the Planche (s) Contact festival

Through refined technical interventions in the laboratory, Flore, a true alchemist, shapes as much as she recreates the world unfolding before her eyes to make unique images that move away from conventional photographic reality. She passes with ease from the oldest techniques, such as platinum-palladium or cyanotype, to the most modern, sometimes mixing them and physically intervening on the prints with wax or gold. She defines her poetic and timeless universe as a political act, which is her way of positioning herself in front of the “bundle of darkness that comes from her time”, as Giorgio Agamben emphasizes.

His exhibition "What love was it": 

 In film and in black and white, it is through a film shot with PaillardBolex 16mm from the 2022s that FLORE takes us into the world of Marguerite Duras. Focused on the budding passion between Michael Richardson and Anne-Marie Stretter in Marguerite Duras' novel The Rapture of Lol V. Stein, the film, and its photograms, take us on a journey into the very essence of the text. This work is the opening of a diptych whose central part - focused on the character of Anne-Marie Stretter - will be filmed in India, in spring XNUMX.
