Self Portraits

    Olivia Ghalioungui

Self Portraiture is one of my outlets. One of the only times where I feel I can fully be myself unapologetically. For many years I had kept it secret from the public, too hesitant to display it in front of others to see. This selection of images, from a new series I am producing ongoingly, represents my newfound acceptance and love of my expression through self portraiture.

I am an Italian/Egyptian fashion and portrait photographer currently based in Paris, France and travelling often to Athens, Cairo, and Zürich. Born in Greece and raised in Egypt until 2016, I am currently obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at Paris College of Art (2020). I have previously assisted for magazines like ELLE, Grazia, Numéro, Sorbet, and SCMP Style, as well as Paris Photo. Publications include ELLE Arabia, Vogue Italia, Shuba Magazine, Flanelle Magazine, KODD, and more. Clients include Marie De La Roche, Lo Neel, La Lune Official, Tiane 'Tenui, and more.
