About Laurence Chellali


The photography allows me to see and to give to look what is invisible to the naked eye.

I’m a french citizen and I lived for 10 years in Genoa, in Italy. Now, I’m living in Nanjing, in China

The photography entered my life as means of personal expression. It allows me to give my interpretation of the reality, to remodel it and to print my feelings there. I always look for the harmony between elements, whether they are material, colors or contrasts. The photography allows me to organize these elements so that they can co-live in a frame I choose. Believe me, this research is delicious!

If you visit the « Portfolio » part of this site, you can penetrate into my photographic universe. You will likely notice that my images are highly contrasted most of the time, whether they are colored or in black and white. I also like playing with the apposition of textures: it gives to images depth and some material, for which the digital technology is too cold and too smooth to my taste. Moreover, I use other creative tools such as Holga, Polaroid or Yashicat Mat 124 to have unique visiopns of the world and are, obviously, part of my favourite tools.

I thank you wholeheartedly for your visit, and feel free to send a message or to leave me your words on the blog. I would be delighted to know more about you and your feelings !
