Photograph by Claude Renault
Born in Nantes in 1971, I am a French photographer and a graduate in graphic design who lives in Bristol. Expressing myself in a photographic style between documentary and street photography, my work focuse on the cultural relationship that people have with their environment and how it affects and influences their everyday life and that of the community. In recent years I have worked on separate long term projects about the Medinas of Morocco, the Gurung people in Nepal and more recently the Yamuna river in India. I focus on long term projects because of the human aspect, but also to have better insight and understanding of a situation over time.
My photographs have been published internationally in various magazines and publication include Le Monde Voyage, Wardour Communication, World Nomads, Real Travel, La Maison de l’Indochine, Scots Magazine, Chine Plus, National Geographic books, Budget Travel Magazine, Shetland Life Magazine, Capital, Destination Magazine.
