Douce d’Ivry is a French outdoor photographer based today between Paris and Hong Kong.
She started her career in music and video production in Paris, London and Singapore before moving to Hong Kong in 2016 where she became a full-time photographer. A blend of
fashion and street photography, Douce’s work offers a dreamy and colorful facet of Hong
Her work in production inspired her to realized staged fashion shoots with the help of local artists : models, make up artists and stylists. Douce will spend hours location scouting to find the perfect surrounding allowing her to express her sensitivity and creativity. Her poetic and airy approach to photography was inspired by artists such as Philippe Halsman, Jean Paul Goude and filmmaker Wong Kar-wai.
Another aspect of Douce’s work is her street series. This time, the models are the people of Hong Kong, captured in their own and unique environment. Spontaneous, quirky and often
unusual, these street pictures have been entirely shot using film cameras, with minimum
editing to retain their authenticity and true nature.
“Hong Kong has been a revelation for me. This city became my own 24h photography set in
which I could release all my creative energy. I wanted to share my own interpretation of the
streets and its inhabitants.”
Douce has completed her first solo exhibition at Château Zoobeetle in Hong Kong. The
exhibition was relayed by local and international medias (Dailymail, HKFP, Creative
Boom…) and described it as a “uniquely youthful take on Hong Kong’s technicolour streets".
