Using simple elements, such as the naked body and dust, photographer Olivier Valsecchi creates stunning portraits on the Dust series.
In his own words, “the series is a mix of birth and death altogether where time doesn’t exist, or is redefined as a non continuous cycle. It’s like I have created a human cocoon and opened it to see what was inside. Each photo is a representation of this metamorphosis process. It was inspired by Ovid’s definition of Chaos, who describes it as the confused mass (light and darkness, order and disorder, liquid and fog) that exploded to give birth to the elements that it contained”.
Born in Paris, Valsecchi spent 10 years as self-taught photographer before taking courses in that area to improve his techniques.
