Claire de Virieu lives and works between Rome and Paris.
She has published several books with Pierre Bergé, Marc Augé, Hubert de Givenchy, etc. Over the past twenty years, these works have been on display in several art shows.
More recently, she has rekindled her passion for black and white photography, creating imaginary landscapes inspired by Japanese culture as well as a series of abstract images.
In 2017 and 2019 she displayed the latter at the Pierre-Alain Challier gallery in Paris and she took part in the Festival Kyotographie in Kyoto.
A portfolio entitled “Nara” containing her recent works has been released by Éditions La Falaise.
For her lattest project “Photogrammes”, Claire de Virieu has returned to her darkroom in Borgogne to work on her shots materially, without camera or film. The flowers and leaves she uses all come from her personal garden which is both her greatest passion and the source of her inspiration.
