Many of my works are far from the nude genre. I do not hide them, but coincidently they are not in the spotlights. My work generates different, often opposite views from respected professionals. What I mean is that my style is subjected to many comments and criticisms on their part; their job is to characterize and define me, to compare me to other contemporary artistic genres, while I do not want to fit into a mould. I don’t have a specific agenda: I only want to put women at the centre of my work. I may depict them in unexpected and provocative ways, but women are also a product of our society, and they exist outside of our social makeup, codes and values. That is why they appear so alive and brilliant in my work. Showing a woman’s naked body is not an invitation. It doesn’t mean that she is open and available, in a vulgar sense. It only means that she inspires me, and that’s what I want to share with the viewers. I may give them the gift of illusion, but I do not lie. Maybe that’s what defines my style and approach to photography. A picture can be neither the conclusion nor the beginning of some long story. I am not a professional and I’m nowhere close to that. Whatever comes out of my work is the result of the high and low points in my life, which has its own scale, dynamics and direction. For me, it is not complicated to create images. They are simply the reflection of my own sexual map, if that makes any sense... Nothing comes out of nothing. Even if we can't verbally characterize or explain something, our subconscious is always at work: it shapes and takes the shape of our skills, our own personal upbringing and feelings. Being a photographer is like sowing seeds into a fertile soil: if all the ingredients gathered together propoerly, you'll be guaranteed a good crop. It simply takes time, instinct and fleeting moods to share your story with the viewer, who will in turn make it their own. "

Marc Lagrange is a photographer born in Congo, Kinshasa, nowadays based in Antwerpen, Belgium.
His work is evocative, sensual and voluptuous, celebrating beauty and pleasure.
Marc has a predilection for nudes and portraits, creates luxurious and timeless environments,
where eroticism and intimacy play a central part.
Hedonistic and privileged, his images do not deal with ordinary settings or regular situations.
They focus on dreams and fantasies, escaping logic and the constraints of reality.
His eye for detail, which is apparent within intricate compositions, underlines a perfectionist streak,served by his use of technique.
Asked how he would define his work, Marc says: «A cocktail of light eroticism, sensuality
and refinement, with a penchant for decadence.»
«I like Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton and Peter Lindbergh, but for me the biggest was Irving Penn.»
Designing his own sets and getting the right props is something Lagrange is passionate about.
The same applies to his locations, which he carefully researches until they fit his requirements.
He will often spend days looking for a specific piece of furniture or the type of cutlery he wants
laid out on a table. His banquet scenes, which are striking and festive at the same time, illustratehis ability to enhance precision while creating the right mood.
«The hardest part is the preparation of a session. I'm always busy with production,
looking for the place, finding my team, my model. It is very difficult to find one that will
surprise me, that will enthusiastically participate in this game, the universe becomes ours.
I love that nothing can escape me.»
