Biography | Flora Borsi – Professional photographer

Flora is an art photographer. She uses exquisite photographic techniques to create surreal images that are themed around identity, relationships, emotions and dreams. His immaculate technique and subtle conceptual ideas create beautiful evocations of universal emotions, from lust and desire to despair and loss. Flora captures both the complex strength and fragility of the human psyche. She expertly visualizes dark fantasies and atmospheric dreams using the strange and clever metaphor as she uncovers what it means to think, feel, dream and express in the urban world.

Her work often features the female body, and she plays with hiding and revealing the eyes or face to leave only the female form, exploring questions of female representation and the relationship between body and self.

Flora has exhibited internationally with solo exhibitions in Europe and the USA, and has a solo exhibition at Lanoue Gallery, Boston. She also exhibited at the Louvre, France. Her work was the face of Adobe Photoshop in 2014, and she created the visual identity for Adobe’s Creative Cloud in 2019. Her ethereal aesthetic has won numerous art awards and been praised by the press, including The Guardian’s Observer and BBC Culture. She entered the American Forbes 30 under 30 list, and in 2021 Hasselblad chose her as the first Hasselblad heroine of the year. She is one of the great winners of the Florence Biennale.
