About the Artist

Self-taught painter, with a peculiar background, combining entrepreneurship and art, Elka Leonard has been painting on canvas for twenty-five years now, a pictorial universe full of colour and freedom. Sensitive to everything around her, she paints as close as possible to her inner reality.
Self-knowledge and the quest for freedom are the guiding principles of all her work. For Elka Leonard, it is not a question of playing a character, of appearing, but of being.
By painting, Elka Leonard wishes to make the observer think about the man of the 21st century. The latter, trapped in a multitude of alienating injunctions, came to turn away from himself. On the level of thought, the time has come for laziness, passivity, which manifests itself in the acceptance of ideas without prior personal questioning or reflection, a submission to something external to oneself that governs the individual at his own expense, that encroaches on his free will. What place remains for inner silence, the emergence of ideas and thoughts? How to find your own free will?
Faced with this, her Women seek to recover their singularity. Epicurean, they let their aspirations and thoughts guide their choice. A new way of seeing the world that emerged.

runo Fabbris is a French photographer and artist. After studying drawing and painting in the Paris Art Workshops, he turned to black and white silver photography and made his own prints. From now on, his artistic approach consists of monochrome style of his own, made of black, grey and brown. In collaboration with a designer, Nathalie Rutili, he produces series, with diverted and prototypical materials, that cover and dress silhouettes of often ethnic personalities.
His "KRAFT" series is a new project made of compositions of recovered paper. The bodies are dressed in craft, silk paper and cardboard, inspiring scenes of almost couture elegance. This origami dance fascinates as much as these paper girls, these muses with veiled, revealed bodies, these graphic vegetal and flowery forms in a vaporous, almost heavenly atmosphere. As the work unfolds, our imagination is carried from Asia to Africa, all wrapped in a light fog that light passes through.
"Creating images is something close to breathing, it's vital, I can't do without it. Creating is of the order of the emotional order, it palpitates in your chest when the image appears on the screen, a small discharge immediately warns you that it is the one you expected. " Bruno Fabbris

Studio Harcourt, out of time and fashion, generates light. The photographer, like a sculptor, creates and shapes a case of light around his model, he interprets a symphony of shadows and lights, impalpable like a caress.
This unique image conceals a story, an emotion, a clever alchemy of chiaroscuro. Light exalts the sacred, shadows sublimate the secrets of the unconscious, the soul shines through and reveals itself through looks from the most secret to the most vibrant.
The Harcourt label tends to infuse a mythological dimension into each portrait. Time is suspended, inviting everyone to enjoy an unforgettable moment. He draws his style from the roots of the glamour of the golden age of French cinema in black and white.
Now labelled a true institution, "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant", the Harcourt brand is part of the collective unconsciousness and continues its quest for timelessness, engraving its mark in the imagination of time. A pictorial memory of the great artistic, cultural and political figures of the 20th century, legend is an obvious fact, defying the passing of time.
