Younès Klouche was born in Lausanne, Switzerland. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the prestigious Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL) in 2015. Through his work he looks for solutions to re-define the documentary genre thanks to a conceptual and reflexive approach. Exhibitions showing his work include Musée de l’Élysée, the Bienne Photoforum, Art Bärtschi Gallery, and the Tate Modern. On the occasion of the 2016 Rencontres d’Arles- he released his first published photo book with Éditions du LIC.
Nava is publishing photographs from the series Orphée. The series is inspired by the 1950 Jean Cocteau film of the same title. Cocteau’s film features simple but ingenious special effects and explores the symbolism of mirrors as a representation of death. The places documented in Orphée are the same locations as those presented in the the landmark exhibition “New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape” shown at the George Eastman House in 1975.
