Claudia du Lièvre’s experiment with photography began when, looking for a skateboard, she found her grandfather’s Minolta camera. She started taking photographs of her friends and close surroundings. Intimacy and self expression remained her main themes.
Currently based in London, Claudia focuses on fashion and portraiture, oftentimes with dramatic use of color. Through her photographs she aims to transcribe an honest and intuitive apprehension of her subject. Done via controlled and intentional pose, she reaches for the shining authenticity of a candid scene. Her favourite pieces are the stolen moments in which her subject fails to play their part, and is rather carried by their honest movements and emotions.
