La Paz, Bolivie
Delphine Blast is a French documentary and portrait photographer, based between Paris and La Paz, Bolivia.
I am a self-taught documentary and portrait photographer. My work draws primarily on an emotional response and engagement with my subjects. I embrace the personal and private aspects of people’s lives and am driven by a desire to get under the skin and straight to the heart of the issues that they strive to deal with.
Since 2015, I have been developing a documentary work on the role of women in Latin America, focusing on the construction of her identity in a changing society. My work has been exhibited in France, Bolivia, Dominican Republic and more recently in Georgia where my two projects about the women issue in Colombia were exhibited at the Kolga Festival, in Tbilisi.
I am a member of the studio Hans Lucas since 2015.
