Since the 1990s, photographer Valérie Belin has been scrutinizing stereotypes and canons with her distanced gaze. Speaking to Arnaud Laporte on the occasion of her exhibition at the Obadia Gallery, she discusses the evolution of her plastic language and her creative process.
Valérie Belin, a visual photographer whose virtuosity blurs the boundaries between the human and the inhuman, stands out for the power and consistency of her visual line.
