Damien Dufresne


When the art of photography and the art of makeup come together, the resulting work is deeply original. World-renowned photographer Damien Dufresne has been living in China for several years. There, he’s developed a passion for Chinese symbolism in colors and makeup. Fusing the thousand-year-old tradition with his own sensitivity and experience has led to photographs of painted faces, staged traditional objects, and silhouettes. In this stunning monograph, Dufresne collects works that range from surprising and moving to troubling and disturbing. This tour de force will leave any viewer with a desire to see more.
