Damien Dufresne creates images that are meaningful to him, telling stories without words, conveying a kaleidoscope of emotions. He paints his models layer by layer, without betraying who they are. His work relies on the trust he builds with his models, capturing the moment in a subtle balance of shadow, light and strong colors.
Damien Dufresne prefers the idea of suggesting rather than showing something. In his latest work we see his fascination for veils with which he wraps his characters, either protecting or capturing them with a swirl of tulle. There is a recurring use of red and the influence of painting is increasingly apparent in his journey as a photographer.
