Vee Speers, an Australian artist, has lived and worked in Paris since 1990. Speers studied fine art and photography at the QCA in Brisbane before working as a Stills Photographer at the ABC Television in Sydney in the 80's. After moving to Paris, she began working only as an art photographer, producing Bordello, followed by Parisians, The Birthday Party, Immortal, Thirteen and now Bullet Proof, engaging viewers with the dramatic tension of her portraits and her unique pallet of colour.

A Paris Story is a humorous celebration of the French culture by an Australian photographer. Immersed in the Parisian life for the past 15 years, she has closely observed French eccentricity today.
Immediately one senses the photographer’s keen eye for detail and symbolism. The subject is posed, yet relaxed within the staged environment. A sense of trust is established between Vee and her subject, so much so that when appropriate, she is able to apply her sense of drama using her cinematic background – extending the visual beyond the obvious.
