Instagram Takeover – Guen Fiore

A portrait of a young girl with unusual, wide-set eyes.

Guen Fiore’s imagery brings together gesture and gaze to create subtle portraits imbued with humanity and personality. She focuses her attention at the same time on the ‘inner nature’ of her subjects and on how to ‘reach out and touch the viewer’s feelings.’ Her camera takes her to intimate spaces, capturing bodies in repose and play, in youth and on the cusp of motherhood.

Based in London, Fiore has worked for Vogue Italia, Jalouse Magazine, and i-D, and her work has been recognised by Vanity Fair and La Repubblica, the Palm* Photo Prize 2019 and the Taylor Wessing Prize 2018, and exhibited internationally.

Fiore is taking over @paperjournalmag from today until the 15th of July. You can follow her @guenfiore and see more of her work at
