Jo Terrien is a fine arts photography artist. She has lived in various parts of the world and is now based in Paris where she was born in 1995.
She uses innovative developing processes to manipulate analog photographs. Rather than simply working the light with her camera she captures it with her enlarger in the darkroom. Jo disrupts the standards of photography and pushes her pieces to go further than the traditional 2D photography.
With portraiture, her work brings the viewer closer to her models. Through her practice of layering different faces of the same person, she transforms the portrait into a 3D image, showing the complexity of the person's personality. In a world where we consume images at hyper speed, the artist invites the viewer to an attentive observation of the facets and faces of each portrait.
She exhibited in California and Alabama. Her work was published in Le Tirage à mains nues (winner of the HIP award) by Guillaume Geneste. Her pieces can now be found in multiple private collections.
