Flore (born 1963) is a French-Spanish photographer and daughter of the painter Olga Gimeno.

Work

Flore took up photography in 1977 and after completing her studies in Toulouse, she established herself in Paris where she currently lives and works. Her most significant works include a "Carte Blanche" assigned by the Municipality of Paris for an art series on Le Petit Palais, Musée des Beaux Arts of the City of Paris, and her photographic project on the Rivesaltes Concentration Camp in Southern France. FLORE is familiar with long scale assignments and commissions. She carries them through by herself and develops them alongside her personal projects. Since 2008, she disembarked on a new journey across the Mediterranean basin for the needs of her new series "Une Femme Française en Orient" and directs an analogue photography course in collaboration with the L'Oeil de l'Esprit collective. Several of FLORE's artworks form part of public and private collections in France and worldwide.
