Boris Camaca


Boris Camaca is a Parisian artist who previously established a career as a leading fashion photographer and art director. A regular contributor to magazines such as TankVogue, Crash and Masses – as well as the co-founder of Télévision magazine – Camaca’s work revolves around a singular, discernible aesthetics that combines heavy saturation of colours, humorous styling and an extensive use of narration. In his photographs, Camaca stages minute visual scenarios that investigate processes of identity formation via reflections on self-representation, gender fluidity and the economy of images. Through the confluence of enigmatic characters and improbable settings, Camaca creates eerie, uncanny scenes through which he critically addresses the social and political questions of our time.
