Some photographers are almost silent when it comes to talking about their work. Yet they can be prolific in their output, as if their images say all they want to. Gaelle Le Boulicaut is one such photographer. Her portfolio, which focuses on interiors and architecture, has been published throughout the world - mainly through the Elle Decor and Marie Claire groups. She has shot for some of the biggest names in the lifestyle sector, such as Levi's, Kenzo and Clarins as well as interior brands Gervasoni, Pierre Frey and Piet Boon. Gaelle has also worked extensively with Marianne Brandi, shooting the interiors of the DAY Birger and Mikkelson designer. But Gaelle remains a photographer who is seen more than heard. However, it is possible to follow her trail around the world - both in life and work. Gaelle studied photography in Canada and Australia (at the Australian Centre for Photography). She based herself in Sydney for a decade before returning to France, where she now lives with her family. Gaelle has kept her global outlook on life through her photography. Recent published work includes Jade Jagger's home in Goa, India (for Elle Decoration UK), Frank Sinatra's Modernist home in Palm Springs, USA (for French magazine Madame Figaro), and a retreat in the Caribbean for US mag Coastal Living. For a glimpse into her world you can follow her on Instagram and Facebook.
