“Photography is my way of sharing my imagination with others to allow them to invent their own stories.”
Delphine Millet tells stories. She creates worlds between fiction and reality where her characters evolve and where she herself is the protaganist of each resulting photograph. She inserts herself into the landscapes around her. Each image reflects her humor and some magic touches, which produces her playful and Alice in Wonderland style of work. To her, every idea is a good one as long as it is crazy or fun and draws on the imaginations of the viewer.
Currently she is working on a series inspired by her daydreams and fairytales.
About / Biography
Delphine Millet is a young artist photographer based in the French Alps.
Since she was a child, she has been making movies in her mind. But it was her studies in art school that allowed her to discover photography and a way to express her stories.
She fell in love with the medium of photography which allowed her to capturate the beauty of people and places. Her interest for staged photography started when she met a group of young people who were passionated about the 50's and old cars. They mimiced the trends of an era gone and were living as though in a movie.
This ‘make-believe’, inspired her to mix fiction and reality in her photographs. She imagined scenes and carefully built her elaborate sets, making all the props herself, using paper, fabric, wood or other found materials.
Today she is a successful photographer living in her own make-believe world. Her work is published in international media and her imagination consumed by thousands.
