“With these next-to-nothings that she sets before us like so many offerings of suspended time, Flore widens our gaze and extends the world with previously unsuspected spaces”. – Susana Gállego Cuesta, Petit Palais curator
French-Spanish photographer, Flore was born in 1963 and currently lives and works in Paris. She has held solo exhibitions worldwide and is represented by several galleries, with many of her works now forming part of public or private collections. Alongside her photographic work, Flore is an acclaimed teacher running regular workshops. She defines her poetic and timeless universe as a political act – her way of making a stand against what Giorgio Agamben calls the “ray of darkness of one’s time”.

“In the way she frames her photographs, and with this whiteness that seeps out – there, the sun is also white and everything is caught up in a kind of mist that blurs the contours – FLORE manages not so much to illustrate Marguerite Duras’s stories as to walk in her footsteps. Not as an admirer, but as a sort of ghost of a hallucinatory alter ego, awakening in our innermost selves a knowledge of why and how Duras’s words, read, re-read, dwelt on, gone over and over again, never cease to enchant our imagination, making us desperately yearn to make the journey, for ourselves, to the country of the living dead.
An absence presence.” by Laure Adler
