Located in the city center of Saint-Denis, Studio “Atelier Fabrique” is an atypical space of 280 m² which was in turn the former studio of Dionysian sculptor Jean Kiras and a theater.
Today, the place is reinvested by photographer Fabrice Dang, passionate artist, and offers two platters of 80m ² and 35m ² (including a cylorama corner), meeting the ergonomic, technical and creative needs for artistic projects, events or cultural encounters.
On this occasion, Studio “Atelier Fabrique” will exhibit talented photographers, with very different universes, on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December from 10am to 7pm.
Since childhood, photography accompanies Philippe daily. Press photographer, shooter, head of lab, director of production for agencies and magazines, head of a photo service in a magazine, he teaches photography and photojournalism. His representations of the body, his vanities, his enigmatic and striking landscapes (in film in particular), invite to dreaming.
Very young, Natalia was confronted with the world of the street and motherhood. Photography has become for her a way to exist, not to remain invisible and not to sink into oblivion. Since she came of age, she poses as a model, nudity being a way of questioning the fragility of her identity and her vulnerability. Immersed in the art of self-portraiture, she tries to reclaim her body and her image. Winner of international prizes, exhibiting abroad, her photographic universe fascinates and touches: Natalia reveals us through her photographs her most intimate history.
Laure is a portrait photographer, a member of Studio Hans Lucas. She studied at the National School of Theater Arts and Techniques and later specialized in photography at the Gobelins. She played on stage and on screen before devoting herself completely to photography. Her gaze turns to the intimate portrait, the body of the woman, the man, and family ties. She realized “Louves”, an exhibition on the social assignments of women. She made a photographic report on the district of Les Puces and illustrated the book “Osteopathy, a sensitive approach of the body”, studying the textures of the skin, water and plants. Laure’s photographs communicate an impression, a feeling, where words are hard to find. Her work has been published this year in Le Monde and specialized magazines.
“Photographic Conversations” is a new studio project, only with men and sound recordings dealing with intimacy. “Ava or The Origin” is a series also underway, addressing the power of representation of the woman’s body.
Arthur Bensana started working for l’Oréal by doing backstage reports and then specialized in press kits of ambassador hairdressers. His clients are in haute-coiffure, he diversifies and realizes books for models, different editorials of fashion and beauty for fashion magazines. For Arthur Bensana, “beauty hides in the perfection of simple things”, his photographic work tends to capture the essence of his subject, without artifice.
Eternal dreamer, passionate about the world of dreams and the poetry of the strange, Marion Saupin is a young photographer. During her studies, she discovered all the possibilities offered by the work of portrait and staging, she became a portraitist. In the studio, Marion makes her models play imaginary characters. Her work focuses on the themes of the dream, the strange and the bizarre by transporting the viewer into an offbeat, sweet and poetic universe. Her photographs are without landmarks, relatively pure, timeless and give free rein to the imagination, while integrating strangeness in a subtle way. She likes to make strange accessories, made of paper and other materials and make her models up.
