Christelle Boulé's practice focuses on editorial and experimental photography with a strong interest in the visual representation of the intangible. She is fascinated with the sense of smell and expressing it in photographic form. Inspired by material testing and observations of how to capture the invisible – scents, sounds, emotions, time, ideas, concepts – Christelle likes to find ways to interpret and reveal what we cannot see.
Christelle Boulé (b. 1984) is a Canadian-Swiss artist and photographer.
