2024 Master of Photography: Valérie Belin

15 - 19 May

Photo London’s Master of Photography for 2024 is one of France’s most popular and acclaimed photographers, Valérie Belin. Throughout her career, Belin has explored the tension between the superficial appearance of things and their true nature. Often using the human body as a vessel for abstraction and projected meaning, she has photographed live models and mannequins, masks and card sharks, dancers and bodybuilders, questioning the construction and fetishization of mainstream beauty ideals and enduring gender constructs. Her work will be presented at Embankment East Gallery as part of Photo London.
