Bio

In an extensive portfolio of work representing nearly 25 years of perpetual refinement, the beauty and power of Michele Aboud’s portraits and photography shines through.

Michele is completely conversant with the rigorous pictorial demands of advertising, beauty and fashion, expressed in images which were formative to her career. But her portraiture expresses an extraordinary assurance which can only come from nearly a lifetime of experience and the precise and ongoing refinement of vision.

Equally at ease in photography and in the direction of motion picture, Michele has welcomed the evolution of these media and mastered the new creative potential in her editorial, commercial and personal projects. There is no subject which hasn’t piqued her interest. Her images reveal unexpected beauty and remarkable reflections, which resonate with contemporary living. Her work is a rare and accomplished statement of emotional power in perfect balance with deep insight and confidence.
