Senta Simond

Through Senta Simond’s lens, the relationship between a photographer and her sitter is magnified tenfold.

The Geneva-born artist is principally concerned with human connection, identifying its nuances in the expression on a face or the gesture of the body, and placing it front and centre in her powerfully intimate compositions.

Nudity has its part to play here too, but it feels collaborative rather than voyeuristic – empowering, instead of prying. Through close crops of her subjects, Simond identifies the crux of their shared contact, documenting it for her viewer to play a part in, too.

Take her debut artist book, entitled Rayon Vert. Published by Kominek in 2018, it presents a series Simond created over the last years, photographing close friends and friends of friends in the privacy of her Switzerland studio. The title refers to Eric Rohmer’s 1986 film Le Rayon Vert (or ‘The Green Flash’), and references the rare meteorological phenomenon in which the appearance of the sun, as it rises or falls beyond the horizon, creates a brief flash of green, and with it a supposed moment of mental clarity for all those who see it – a profound metaphor for Simond’s own practice.

In this series, the artist’s enduring interest in filmic ideas – she studied the aesthetic and history of cinema, before undertaking both BA and MA courses in Photography at the prestigious École Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne (ECAL) – interacts with a profound pursuit of emotional connection.

Now, Simond is turning her hand to short film, transposing her fascination with gesture onto moving image media for an upcoming Paris exhibition. She has previously exhibited in solo shows at Foam Museum and Webber Gallery, and as part of group exhibitions in Tokyo, London, Bienne and Basel, among others.

In 2018 Simond was selected for the Foam Talent awards and won the Swiss Federal Design Award. She has previously been nominated for prizes including the British Journal of Photography Ones to Watch (2018), Paris Photo-Aperture First Book Award (2017), the Unseen Dummy Award (2016 and 2017), and the Prix Photoforum Pasquart (2017).

Clients include: AnOther Magazine, Double Magazine, Holiday, Patcharavipa and Renaissance.
