BIOGRAPHY

"Using images is my way of communicating with people. As a photographer interested in nature, society and beauty, I seek to engage my audience in the continuous and meaningful dialogue on these essential topics. As strong and aesthetic as I can do, my photography is never imagery in itself. The eye is a part of the brain with its function of memory and consciousness of the mind. Photography makes it accessible to others; This is how I conceive of my work and my vocation in life." 
(Inspired from Tomasz Gudzowaty, Vogue Italia, 2015.)

Since childhood, Jennifer Orhélys lived in Different Cultures, Languages and Art. She always attracted to writing, poetry, music and fashion; and lucky to be in contact with the beauty and surrounding wilderness. Strong visual experience, which will feed her years later in her artistic expression: Photography.

Jennifer is a Photo Vogue Italia published photographer who studied Cinema, Visual Arts, and Art History at the Ecole des Arts at the Sorbonne-Pantheon. So her fascination for the Art of Self-portraiture is a specialization. Her photographic working the "scénaristique" staging inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite and Romantic periods of classical paintings. 

"Jennifer Orhélys is a natural, as the strong heart heroine. Visions of the modern fairy tales."

Orhélys' Self-portraits explore themes as varied as Romanticism, Fairy Tales, Surrealism, Hyper-Femininity, the Universe, and the Beauty of Nature in her thought-provoking photographic-dramatic works. In her images, Jennifer shares a world full of magical appearance. Her portfolio shows more than a thousand different women where is used her face in hundreds of presentations. Its pastoral, dreamy and sensitive world is filled with poetry and takes its spectators very far, through its imaginary journey. She is her own Art Director, Photographer, Model, Stylist, Makeup Artist and Hairdresser. Jennifer excels in the dangerous exercise of constantly recreating herself in the discipline of self-portrait.

In 2017, her work and research on the art of self-portraiture was recognized and were part of the permanent collection chosen by Mr Hosoe Eikoh, famous photographer and director of the Kiyosato Photographic Museum, Japan. 

Jennifer has exhibited from New York to Los Angeles and Berlin to Japan.

Her self-portraits have featured in several significant group exhibitions, such as the Berlin Foto Biennale/Magnum Agency (Palazzo Italia, Berlin), the Louvre Museum (Paris), Times Square (New York), Artist Corners Gallery (Hollywood), Pragati Maidan, (New Dehli).

Her photographs lead her to participate in numerous exhibitions, and her images have recognized in several prestigious national and international competitions. 

She regularly works with the French and foreign press.

Today, Jennifer Orhélys studies Art, Botany and Faerie.

"Utiliser des images est ma façon de communiquer avec les gens. En tant que photographe intéressée par la nature, la société et la beauté, je cherche à engager mon public dans un dialogue continu et significatif sur ces sujets essentiels. Aussi forte et esthétique que je peux le faire, ma photographie n'est jamais une imagerie en soi. L'œil fait partie du cerveau avec sa fonction de mémoire et de conscience de l'esprit. La photographie le rend accessible aux autres; c'est ainsi que je conçois mon travail et ma vocation dans la vie. " 
(Inspiré de Tomasz Gudzowaty, Vogue Italia, 2015.)

Depuis l'enfance, Jennifer Orhélys a vécu dans des différentes cultures, des langues et l'art. Elle a toujours été attirée par l'écriture, la poésie, la musique et la mode; et chanceuse d'être en contact avec la beauté et la nature environnante. Forte d'expérience visuelle, qui la nourrira des années plus tard dans son expression artistique: la photographie.

Jennifer est une photographe publiée par Photo Vogue Italia qui a étudié le cinéma, les arts visuels et l'histoire de l'art à l'Ecole des Arts de la Sorbonne-Panthéon. Sa fascination pour l'art de l'autoportrait est donc une spécialisation. Son travail photographique à la mise en scène «scénaristique» est inspirée des périodes préraphaélite et romantique de la peinture classique.

"Jennifer Orhélys est une sauvage, comme une héroïne au cœur fort. Visions des contes de fées modernes."

Les autoportraits d'Orhélys explorent des thèmes aussi variés que le romantisme, les contes de fées, le surréalisme, l'hyper-féminité, l'univers et la beauté de la nature dans ses œuvres photographiques et dramatiques qui suscitent la réflexion. Dans ses images, Jennifer partage un monde plein d'apparence magique. Utilisant son visage dans des centaines de productions, son portfolio montre plus d'un millier de femmes différentes. Son univers bucolique, rêveur et sensible est plein de poésie et emmène ses spectateurs très loin, à travers son voyage imaginaire. Elle est sa propre directrice artistique, photographe, mannequin, styliste, maquilleuse et coiffeuse. Jennifer excelle dans le périlleux exercice de se recréer constamment dans la discipline de l'autoportrait.

En 2017, son travail et ses recherches sur l'art de l'autoportrait ont été reconnus et font partie de la collection permanente du Kiyosato Photographic Museum choisie par M. Hosoe Eikoh, célèbre photographe et directeur du musée au Japon.

Jennifer a exposé de New York à Los Angeles et de Berlin au Japon.

Ses autoportraits ont figuré dans plusieurs expositions de groupe importantes, telles que la Berlin Foto Biennale / Magnum Agency (Palazzo Italia, Berlin), le Louvre Museum (Paris), Times Square (New York), Artist Corners Gallery (Hollywood), Pragati Maidan, (New Dehli) ...

Ses photographies l'amènent à participer à de nombreuses expositions, et ses images ont été reconnues dans plusieurs prestigieux concours nationaux et internationaux.

Elle travaille régulièrement avec la presse française et étrangère.

Aujourd'hui, Jennifer Orhélys étudie l'Art, la Botanique et la Faërie.
