Lara Micheli is a Swiss photographer based in Biarritz, France.

Born on April 8, 1990 in Geneva, Lara began studying Art History in Paris. After obtaining a Bachelor's degree and an internship in Artcurial's Photography department, she continued her training by taking online courses at the International Center of Photography in New York (2017-2021). The Polaroid came as a revelation in 2014 during a series of fashion images for Rag & Bone. She never changes cameras again, and keeps this indispensable "tool" for developing her personal photographic projects.

With Exhibition, Lara Micheli experiments with collage. A way of deconstructing certain moments, then reconstructing them by attaching them to others.

In each image, a piece of herself appears, a fragment of her body that she displays and hides in the same movement. It's a kind of autofiction in which she reveals herself while constantly evading the gaze. She shows herself in all her vulnerability, with sensuality and gentleness. A gentleness present in all her work, tinged here with an erotic power, in a gesture where the artist feels liberated.

Through this series, Lara invites us on an intimate yet discreet stroll in which she exposes herself while preserving her mystery.
