Snapshots | Romy Alizée
In the privacy of her apartment, we discover Romy Alizée, directing bodies (women, men & non binary) with unabashed sexuality, in search of intensity and beauty. Captured in flash, her photos affirm the power of a very personal sexual aesthetic, never devoid of humour. Between directing shoots and hanging her exhibition, the photographer unzips the heart of her work and unveils her new project: documenting sex workers far from the images they get stuck with.
