Philippe-Ciaparra

After 10 years of organ studies with Louis Tortora in Marseille, where I won several awards, I subsequently devoted myself entirely to photography. Although photography, that I practiced since childhood and which I finally learned as an autodidact, has always been my main activity, I obtained a hotel school diploma, and worked as a sommelier for two years in Marseille. In 1995, I moved to Paris where I have been working since as a fashion and portrait photographer. I have produced catalogs, press kits and numerous editorial pages for magazine fashion. As part of my personal work, I focus on twilight landscapes, the nudes, as well as the portraits. My photographs, made using the unique palladium salt process, during a period of 10 years of travels across the United States and Canada, have been exhibited at the galleries of Demi-Tint and K éditeur.
