Allan Sekula was an American photographer, writer, critic and filmmaker. Born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1951, he lived most of his life in Los Angeles and the surrounding regions of southern California.
Guen Fiore (b. 1988) is an award-winning photographer, specialized in creative and portrait photography. The research she pursues finds its centrality in the representation of the human figure. Not only can that be perceived in her personal projects, it also emerges from her professional works, especially in the fashion field, where her focus on the inner nature of the person is a true statement.
Every subject is not merely captured, but rather revisited and transported into a story. The resulting tale is made of subtle gestures, gazes, non-verbal elements that reach out and touch the observer’s feelings and emotions.
A vivid syncretism with filmmaking combined with story-telling, which empowers Guen’s photography with great communicative potential and visual impact.
