Éric du Bellay took up photography at the age of 15. He developed his own black and white photos. From the beginning, his work focused on faces and bodies, as if he wanted to preserve the traces of the living. He left photography to pursue a career as a filmmaker. He made six short films in France and Iceland, and his first feature film, Menina Casilda, was shot in Madrid in 2021. He returned to photography in 2019 with his project Corps Vibrants, nudes shot in a studio in Paris, followed by his second project, Libertad, started in Madrid in 2021 in response to the Pandemic restrictions. Influenced by the works of Marina Abramovi?, Ren Hang, and Ryan McGinley, he explores representations of naked bodies in movement.
