Laetitia Negre is a french–born photographer and filmmaker. Her image making stands at the vanguard of fashion and art photography and offers an uncompromised vision which goes beyond restriction of mediums.
’Negre’s approach is an invitation to exploring a way of working that embraces the ethos and creative potential of chance, intuition, stream of consciousness and dream states through moving image, sound and spoken word. ‘ – Magda Keaney.
Collaborations and clients include Comme des Garçons, Junya Watanabe, Rick Owens and Hood by Air; Haute Couture commissions with Maison Margiela Artisanal, Viktor & Rolf, Schiaparelli; and advertising for Diesel, Nike, John Smedley and Vivienne Westwood.
