Léa Bon is a transgender fashion and art photographer, with a unique, personal and spiritual body of work. Dreams and fantasies from the past and present are portrayed by Léa Bon’s subjects, which she uses as her own personal dolls.
At a young age, Léa Bon found in photography the means by which she could construct her own small worlds using her imagination. Her work breaks with the stereotypes of traditional photography and goes beyond the human eye; it is a fusion between art, fashion, and humanity, evoking surrealism, expressionism, and hyperrealism.
She has done multiple exhibitions about her life, among them “First Cycle-Innocent Vision”, composed of 25 works of art that portray her personal journey. Her photographs have been published in numerous fashion and art magazines around the world.
