About


Christelle Boulé’s practice focuses on editorial and experimental photography with a strong interest in the visual representation of the olfactory. She is fascinated with the sense of smell and expressing it in photographic form. Inspired by material testing and observations of how to represent the intangible in photography (scent, sound and emotion), Christelle likes to find ways to show what we cannot see. 

 

Christelle Boulé (b. 1984) is a Swiss-Canadian artist and photographer. She graduated with a Master of Art Direction (photography) from the prestigious art school ECAL/University of Art and Design in Lausanne (Switzerland). She also holds a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from UQAM/University of Quebec in Montreal (Canada). She lives and works in Lausanne where she is dividing her practice between commissioned work and personal projects.
