Julien Claessens & Thomas Deschamps
Julien Claessens and Thomas Deschamps were born in France and met while they were teenagers.
Deschamps studied photography at the Applied Art School of Vevey in Switzerland. Claessens decided to enroll at the Art Academy La Cambre in Brussels, where he is still based.
Deschamps’ career took off when he went back to Paris. He started shooting for major French groups, allowing him to pursue his personal research and collaborate with writers and performance artists.
Claessens started working in fashion and developed his own work, including nudes, portraits and still lives. His book The Other Side of the Picture – retracing Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens’ career – was published in 2010 by Assouline.
Their clients list includes Nina Ricci, Theyskens’ Theory, Cartier, Chanel, Dior, Nirav Modi and Delvaux.
