Magali Chesnel is a French artist, painter and self-taught photographer. Born in Versailles and a native of Brittany - France. Works in Geneva – Switzerland.
She is an award-winning and globally exhibited aerial photographer.
Her ambitions are:
To reveal the world from another perspective: the aerial view, pushing the boundaries between photography and painting to offer a truly unique perspective. With aerial photography, she adds an extra dimension, a degree of confusion which offers incredible views, the "wow factor".
To be witness of her time, to take reality by surprise, to anticipate events with news pictures, to inform the public and to raise awareness, with ethics.
"I like photography because it bathes me, confronts me with its reality, its challenges and its moments of time, which will never come back. When it arrives to give me a more complete view of life, with what surrounds us, in a gripping way, stronger than the reality is itself, the composition is successful, the emotion is there."
