LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Anne Eliayan was first noticed for her photos about cities’ architecture and her fashion photos published in French very large magazines such as ELLE, Madame Figaro or Marie-Claire. In 2016, she meets Christian Pic, a photographer-author-artist and writer himself. For three years they have combined their creations to explore their era, working both on poetic texts and on photographs often using mist, dawns, overlays and textures, to express the man in the center of the world, the alterations of his environment, urban or natural, and the distortions of time passing. Thus, many photographic series were born.
They have been received by the FineArt Photography School of Cagliari in Sardinia, which dedicated an exhibition to them in 2018.
CharlÉlie Couture the famous French multi-artist, Jack Lang French Minister of Culture and the French photographer Sophie Calle, came to meet them in their workshop and showroom in Arles (which they named as their website: “ARLESGALLERY”).
The movements and artists who influence Anne Eliayan and Christian Pic are numerous. Stephen Shore is the major photographer who gives his nobility to color photography and innovative framing. They are also very influenced by the realistic current in which Edward Hopper participates. Arlesians, they take part each year to the Rencontres de la photographie.
