Florian Joye (1979, Lausanne. Living and working in between Lausanne and Paris)
Photographer, graduated from ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne) in 2006 and obtained a Master’s in 2008.
Florian is co-foundor of Novembre magazine.
His work hinges on the notion of probability in a style which oscillates between documentary (real), staging (fiction) and advertising imagery (seduction). He is especially interested in the frontiers between the real and the virtual, between reality and dream.
Fascinated by decors, solid figures, copied monuments, large building sites, scale models, formal places. His work is informed by the collective dreamworld, science fiction and utiopias.
