« I have in the eye militias armed with flowers. These flowers were picked walking. It’s walking that I create. It is necessary to have time for that. Love the space, the horizons and journey. Walk. Love. Steps. The palpitations. People. »
>> Usual Beauty / Photography book
In 1999 I start the Fine Arts school in Grenoble, since then I do photos. I do my first experiments in the black & white laboratory, then I discover slides, witch open me a door on a world of colors. Since more than ten years I take pictures of what obsess me : grounds, windows, doors…all this little nothingness, withch are there, waiting to be extracted to become image. As Haïkus, theses pictures are my poetry.
<< It is a photography which does not question, but observes. The everyday life is the raw material in which she cuts to create her images. A shape which in spite of its cultural gap seems to us familiar.
Flore Lagarde maintains the illusion of a ghostly presence, of someone or somewhere else. >>
My steps bring me to travel..in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Australia, Thaïland, India, Indonesia, Guinéa…In this roaming quest, my camera clicks in beat. I exhibit my work in France and abroad, in small restaurants as well as more prestigious places as Les Moulins de Villancourt or the Centrò Fotograficò Alvarez Bravo in Mexico.
>> Give to this work a book form, is for me make it accessible and be able to enlarge it diffusion.
