Lives in Brussels - Works in Paris & Brussels
Extravert, loud, unpredictable, inventive, secretive and expressive: the acclaimed Christian D’Hoir remains a mystery. What we know is that in 1982 he made his first big fashion campaign thanks to Gruno & Chardin. Many remarkable fashion photo sessions and advertising campaigns followed which appeared in every major magazine (Marie-Claire, Elle, Vogue Jardin des Modes, …). He opened his first studio in Paris where he worked for 15 years almost non stop until 2003. In 1998, the Book (the bible in the photo world) ranked him among the top 10 photographers for a campaign with Polaroid’s on a Thierry Mugler collection…
Always innovative and curious about the new, Christian D’Hoir was amongst the first fashion photographers to go digital. Since he’s is a visual alchemist, constantly exploring special effects and lighting techniques, his inspiration not only comes from pop culture but he also contributes to it.
