Issued from one of the oldest Monegasque families, she is also the descendant of a line of artists versed in the contemporaneity of expression. With this family cultural richness, Calypso naturally turns to the artistic expression of her generation; the fashion photography, before evolving in art photography. .

First a privileged spectator of the masters of the practice, through a career of model, then by creating her photographers' agency which quickly becomes a production house specialized fashion, career which leads her to manage the production of many advertising campaigns in the universe of luxury brands and to exercise her creative imagination by art directing many advertising campaigns and editorial fashion series.
In 2006,  she realizes her first personal clichés. Since then, she has expressed her vision of society, through series and exhibitions (galleries and museums) where her career in fashion photography remains palpable 

 

Co-founder of the association AIDA, Calypso does not abandon her own art by participating
regularly in artistic events, while devoting herself with passion to the realization of the events and the cultural seasons proposed by the Association, which proposes every year, since its creation in 2015, to revisit the major pages of history and strong artistic movements, to draw answers to our problems today.
