My MAD Story

Jennifer Orhélys has been sailing since childhood in a broth of culture, languages and art. She has always drawn to writing, poetry, music and fashion; and lucky to be in contact with the beauty and surrounding wilderness. Strong visual experience, which will feed her years later in her artistic expression: Photography.

Her fascination for the art of self-portraiture, a specialisation that she began to practice as part of her studies of Cinema, Visual Arts and Art History at the School of Arts at the Sorbonne-Pantheon. Hence his photographic work in the "scènaristique" staging inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite and Romantic periods of classical painting.

In her self-portraits, Jennifer shares her world with a magical appearance. So, using her face in dozens of productions, her portfolio gives us more than a thousand different women to see whose suite, filled with poetry, take us on far away by sharing with us his bucolic world, dreamy and sensitive.

She is her Artistic Director, Model, Stylist, Makeup Artist and Hairdresser. She excels in the dangerous exercise of recreating herself always in the discipline of self-portraiture.

Jennifer Orhélys also seems to have found a delicate way of exposing her relationship to nature in grandiose landscapes. By the emotion that carries her, Jennifer creates an imaginary world, coloured and with the subtle messages, of solitary heroines. Because she grew up in a picturesque environment with mountains, trees and fields; The result is a force common to all his images, even if at times they may seem to overlap between peace and wild melancholy.

In 2016, his work and research on the art of self-portraiture was recognised and is part of the permanent collection of the Kiyosato Photographic Museum, a museum dedicated to photography in the Kiyosato area of the city of Hokuto, Japan).
Jennifer has exhibited from New York to Los Angeles and Berlin to Japan.

Her self-portraits have featured in several major group exhibitions, such as the Berlin Foto Biennale / Magnum Agency (Palazzo Italia, Berlin), the Louvre Museum (Paris), Times Square (New York), the KD Gallery (International Biennial of Art).
