Salomé Gomis-Trezise on finding freedom through AI

With the help of AI tech, Salomé Gomis-Trezise creates images to reflect her experience of the world, her journey, and the obstacles she overcomes

“Photography, for me, offers a unique creative outlet by allowing me to capture emotions and scenes in a way that feels more tangible than other art forms,” says Salomé Gomis-Trezise. While she’s dabbled in imagemaking since she was eight years old, Gomis-Trezise has only been professional for the last year or so, but in that time has already established herself as a talent worth looking out for.

Still figuring out her style, the photographer has always been interested in every part of creating an image, from set design and prop sourcing, to styling, casting, and artistic direction. “I relish the freedom of executing my vision without depending on others. It’s a constant learning experience, exploring new ways of working and creating,” she reflects.

Gomis-Trezise’s resourcefulness also extends to her equipment – predominantly she uses her iPhone to shoot. “Shooting on my iPhone was serendipitous; during lockdown, it was my only available tool,” she says. “To my surprise, I discovered I could achieve the same results as with my camera, and I had a blast creating spontaneously. I firmly believe that a good eye and creative mind transcend the limitations of equipment.”
