Florence Cardenti, born in 1971 in Lyon, France, fist obtained a degree in Graphic Arts. She then worked as a computer graphics artist before dedicating herself exclusively to photography. With five other photographers she created Studio Dazzle in Paris, a workshop, photography studio, and a place for artistic exchanges.
After a Master in Graphic Arts, Photography and Contemporary Art from the University of Paris in 2016, she continues her exploration of hybrid creations, integrating historical techniques. Her photography aims at gathering traces of presence in the world, whether natural or left by man, in order to build intimate, family or collective memories. Self-portraits, urban landscapes, installations or varied collections, her images generate experiences to be lived by means of a sensitive and intuitive approach to the world. Florence Cardenti plays with multiples, blurs representations and mixes spaces and temporalities to reveal links between dissimilarities, to show the points of contact where the work becomes another means to think about the world.
