Kalian Lo is a photographer based in  France. Raised in “the pink city” of Toulouse, she graduated from the E.T.P.A school of photography in 2007. Kalian has always had her sights firmly set on the horizon. While living and working abroad, she has developed her creative voice by traveling to different locations and meeting people from all walks of life.
While a student in 2006, Kalian's started to establish her artistic approach and shifted to traditional and instant film after a one time opportunity to work on Sarah's Moon set at the Daylight Studio in Paris. This experience solidified Kalian's style and propelled her to experiment with a variety of cameras, none leaving a more permanent mark then that of Polaroid. This technique instantly allows her to capture a unique visual experience involving vivid colors and dramatic textures through the magic of chemical uncertainty.
Kalian now a master of portraiture is also fascinated by the abandoned factories and houses of our time. Always in search of the next artifact or hidden gem, left behind by the people of yesteryear. The combination of colors in each location creates a fascinating world where imagination allows you to move through empty rooms, factory floors and courtyards with a ghost like perspective. This compels you to develop an awareness of the people who once lived or worked there through the heirlooms,  and subtle detail of these dilapidated locations.

With an unquenchable thirst for travel and an obsessive interest in contrasting cultures,
Kalian  will never stop to vagabond the world.document her experiences through a textually complex and visually stunning body of work.
