The work of Isabelle Chapuis combines art and fashion.
Her photographs focuse on chrysalis textures as a central theme; both light and stringy, likely to have an organic dimension. At once frail and resistant : color skin tights, cotton, wool roving, powder, frost, cotton candy, plants...
Isabelle perceives such materials as a kind of filamentous envelope where metamorphosis can occur.
Born in 1982 in Paris. Having graduated in 2005 from ESAG-Penninghen, with a distinction in graphic design, Isabelle Chapuis wanted to consolidate her studies with experiences rather more personal.
Over the course of two years, several immersive trips in Asia and the Middle-East gave her the chance to face up to other realities. Meanwhile, her creative steps led her to photography.
In december 2010, she won Picto Prize of Young Fashion Photography.
