Lea Crespi



Lea Crespi graduated from the Vevey photography school in Switzerland in 2001 and has since been working as a freelance photographer for European newspapers and magazines. Her work, mainly portraits and reportage, is in colour and in various formats. For her personal project, “Lieux” (Places), Crespi has taken pictures of special places – abandoned houses, building sites, old hotels, factories, warehouses – where she has used her own body, her own skin, as a prop. Parts of this project have been shown in galleries and at events throughout Europe and Asia: the Gallery Vu’ in Arles and Paris, France (2004, 2005, 2008), the Heyri Festival in Seoul, South Korea (2005), Langhans Galerie in Prague, Czech Republic (2005), Paris Photo, Paris, France (2004).
