Biography of Elisa Larvego

Having won numerous prizes, the Geneva-based artist, Elisa Larvego, is a proponent of long exposure in the field of photography – of total immersion at the heart of a subject rather than the decisive moment.

She explores the notions of representation, distance and standpoint while reflecting a sometimes dramatic topicality or buried memories by alluding to what is absent. Elisa Lavergo also creates a narrative by adding intriguing elements or transferring objects to an unusual context.

Travel also holds a special place in her works, as can be seen in the series of pictures taken in Mexico, Siberia and Colorado.
