Letizia Le Fur
Letizia Le Fur graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in France in 1998 and first trained as a painter. With the encouragement of artist and teacher Valérie Belin, she soon turned her aesthetic quest to photography.
Her work centers on the depiction of beauty and the representation of a fantasized otherworld. Letizia Le Fur’s attention to color is very particular; like a painter, she mixes colors on her palette, isolates and transforms, corrects, adds, exalts the tones, amplifies them to transcend reality and creates this sensation of unreal world.
Nominated for the Niepce Prize (2022), winner of the Leica/Alpine Prize (2018), the BNF's Grande Commande Photographique (2022) as well as the “Fenêtres Ouvertes Prize” organized by the MEP (2020), she was also resident for the Planches Contact festival in Deauville (2020), and the InCadaques festival (2021).
In parallel to her artistic work, Letizia Le Fur collaborates with advertising, press (AD, New York Times, Milk …)
She published Mythologies - Chap. I & II in 2021 and Mythologies - Chap. III in 2022 with Editions Rue du Bouquet.
She is also a Leica ambassador since 2019, and has recently showed her solo exhibition at the French Institute in Madrid.
