Christopher Barraja is a 25-year-old photographer born in Nice. He left to study architecture in Marseille at the age of 18 but, having spent too long in the sun, he decided to change his scenery by continuing his studies at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. In the capital, he developed his photographic practice following a stroke at the age of 20 which made him more attentive to invisible things and created a discussion with the inanimate objects around him. He went on exchange to New York where he discovered his fascination for fashion photography. Since then, he weaves a discourse between fashion photography and his personal practice. In 2020, he will graduate from Arts Déco with his book De Chlore et de Rosé, which he has been working on for the past five years. This work will be presented at the Villa Noailles this year, as part of the Hyères festival, of which he is one of the finalists. He is the winner of the Grand Prix Picto de la Photographie de Mode 2022.
