Indira Cesarine

 

INDIRA CESARINE first discovered her love of photography aged 15, while taking a summer school course at Parson's School of Design in Manhattan. Touted as a “photographic child prodigy”, her first solo exhibition was at the age of 16 at the Paul Mellon Art Center. She was the recipient of Choate Rosemary Hall’s prestigious Kaufman Award in “Photographic Art”. While completing a triple major in Art History, French Literature and Women's Studies at Columbia University in New York and Paris, France, she began shooting for a variety of top modeling agencies including Elite, Ford, and Wilhelmina Models in the early 1990's. 

 

Over the years her photography has been featured in countless international publications including British Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Marie Claire, Tatler, The Times, In Style and L’Officiel as well as for brands such as Dior, Charles Jourdan, Kenzo and Cerruti. Aside from her work as a photographer, she has worked throughout her career as a multi-media artist and director. In 2009 she launched XXXX Magazine, "The Untitled Magazine"  showcasing original productions of video art and fashion films, and in 2011 the title was expanded into a globally distributed print edition, 'The Untitled Magazine".

 

Exhibits and screenings of her work include, “Facets of Figuration” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; , "Second Circle"  La Jolla Film Festival at the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art in July 2012; The “Voyeur” Exhibit at Art Basel Miami, in collaboration with Miami Art Museum Contemporaries, American Friends of the Louvre and Quintessentially; “Motion Deconstructed” Exhibit with Quintessentially Art, New York; “Soiree Au Louvre” at the French Embassy Cultural Center; “Carte Blanche” solo show at Visionairs Gallery, Paris. Her short film, “City of Love” was featured at Cannes Film Festival in 2007 and her documentary short film, “In Face of Disability” was featured at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Her video productions were exhibited between 2011-2012 at the Big Screen Plaza in Chelsea, New York. 

 

Indira and her work have been featured internationally on TV shows such as E! TV, Fashion TV, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, HBO’s Special “Ford Supermodel of the World”, MTV, ‘HIGH SOCIETY’ and “Make me a Supermodel” UK and US editions as well as H&M LIFE TV.
