born in Liège and lives in Brussels.
She studied photography at the « Institut des Beaux Arts Saint-Luc » in Liège.
In 2004 she exposed to the biennale of photography at « the Museo de Bellas Artes »
in Santiago of Chili. In 2007, she received the cultural award « Coup d’éclat »
by the Province of Liège.
Taking photography as a process of dialogue, the hallmark of Laetitia Bica’s work is the active
role that she assigns to her models and the originality of her compositions.
Using the camera to blur boundaries, the young artist vocalizes instincts to produce images
where every introspection reflects an event, an encounter, an emulsion.
Close to musicians, designers, filmmakers and artists,
she is an accomplice of a new generation, characterised by its inventiveness, integrity and desire for exploration.
Inclusive and human, Laetitia Bica’s vision is stimulating and appealing, avoiding conflicts
to underscore harmony.

MasterMind Art Directors in Fashion Styling / Published by Victionary
Great fashion does not exist in a vacuum. It must be relevant to the needs of the intended wearer, whether economic, seasonal, aesthetic or temporal. It must also tell a story. Beneath every work of art lies a spark of inspiration, and couture is no exception.
Today’s art directors delve into this tinder, igniting hidden worlds through the subtle use of styling and photographic imagery. Sources are drawn from popular culture to iconic art and literature to provide a myriad of settings both mythic and surreal. By nature these creatives are masters of balance, amplifying a designer’s vision to convey, but not compete with, the true essence of a piece.
With a primary focus on fashion photography, MasterMind features the work of 30 of today’s most cutting edge art directors, fashion stylists and photographers. The highly individual nature of the projects showcased is expressive of the incredible talents at work in this industry. Includes interviews and production notes.
