Biography

Audrey Piguet (08.07.1989) is a young professional photographer, graduated from the photographic school of Vevey (CEPV). During the same year, she received the second prize of the Young Swiss Talent in photography, awarded by the VFG. Then followed various exhibitions and publications of her photographic work. Since 2013, Audrey started her own business as a freelance photographer. She sails between commercial work (fashion and advertising) and her artistic work.

Audrey creates fantastic universes where reality and fantasy overlap. The opposition of these two worlds, nevertheless inseparable one from each other, is the most important inspiration of this young artist, who likes to play on the illusion of appearances and the many interpretations that it can generate. Her aesthetic photographs are the result of our reality that she takes, to then transform its aesthetism to propose a more dreamlike vision, but without obscuring the dark side to the duality of worlds that she represents.

She likes to build her photographs in the manner of painting; chance has not much place in her images. Passionate about creating, she creates the hairstyles, makeup and accessories, which appear in her photographs. Her images are such imaginary visions in which sometimes strange creatures evolve, returning us to our subconscious filled with fanciful visions and fed by our daily lives.
