Chloé Félix - Photographer and Community Arts Worker
People, portraits and trees are in the center of my work. Through photography I am interested in exploring the liminal space between dreams and reality. I wish to reflect how humanity imagines itself and how it relates to its environment .
I grew up in Switzerland, Australia and Asia and I mostly live and work in those parts of the world, currently I am living in Switzerland with my family. I graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University with a Bachelor of Arts (Media Arts). I work as a freelance photographer, mostly for NGO, community groups and cultural institutions.
I love to travel and discover places near and far. Amongst many other things, I love listening to stories under trees, walking in the mountains, swimming with Bioluminescent Phytoplanktons, watching northern lights while bathing in a hot spring and star gazing in the desert...
I also work as a community arts worker and in cultural outreach. I enjoy to share my skills and passion and to instigate participatory workshops or events where the purpose is to create moments of creative exchange, to bring people together and to generate reflection. I have been working since many years with children, youth and people who have a migration story.
