« La Vaporeuse »

Grey velvet

Lila Neutre wishes to summon the velvety atmosphere of a spa. The diaphanous light that makes the room look very enigmatic… Time seems suspended. Wrapped in a coat of steam, the photography is hard to understand at first glance. You will need to observe it for a moment before it delivers all its mystery.

Lila Neutre


Lila Neutre was born in 1989. Having completed her master’s degree at École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in Arles, she is currently working on a photography PhD in southern France. Over a span of four years, she has been focusing her work on notions of identity and self-presentation in contemporary society. The social body assumes the role of the ultimate canvas for Lila’s artistic activity. Her research, both photographic and sociological, has even led her to Japan where she has worked with the cosplay community. Most recently, her work has been shown in various group exhibitions in Marseille and Kyoto, in partnership with the Kansaï French Institute and the International Festival Kyotographie.
