Delphine Burtin is an artist, who currently lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland. Delphine started her career as a graphic designer, working both for advertising agencies and freelance. Later on, in 2011, she completed advanced training in photography at the Vevey School of Applied Arts and came out with a series titled Encouble.
The project met with immediate and wide success; the series has already been shown in Berlin, Paris, Lille, Metz, Bordeaux, Strasbourg, Montpellier, Anvers and New York.
Delphine’s artistic practice combines studio shootings with daylight photographs. It is often based around creating still lifes or contemplating them in daily life. With Encouble series, Delphine questions the notions of illusion and disappearance, pushing the boundaries of photography and playing with the ambiguity of perception. "I wonder about what lies within an image, always keeping in mind the question of how to interpret what our senses reveal. By seeking to engage both with what is shown and what is hidden, I hold up a distorting mirror that reflects parts of ourselves that do exist but that are far from being the whole truth. All this becomes an invitation to engage in a metaphorical exploration of our relationship with the world and with each other,” shared her thoughts Delphine.
