BERLIN.- Stèphane C. communicates immediate world issues from a photographic point of view based on the idea that, "reality is an ambivalent structure, a mental frontier between things, an undefined border separating concrete and elusive fields of materiality and the invisible." He uses photography as a means to describe poetically, the human soul's inner struggle between contemplation and an untamed discontent.
Stèphane C.'s photographic work has remained focused on one project - an ongoing "research" of his environment, his life and the people surrounding him, through which he seeks to lift the veil of uncertainty within human existence in an attempt to make sense of his lived experience. For Stèphane, photography holds the key to revealing what lies beneath the fragmented and vague shadows of his vision/his reality. Stèphane works constantly and passionately to bring light to peripheral darkness and to mirror what he experiences instinctually.
Stèphane C. photographs continuously, setting up a daily rhythm in order to capture as much as possible of the world - night and day, day and night.
Stèphane C. (1976 - Lyon), has been exhibited / projected at Galerie du Château d'Eau Toulouse, Museum Encontros Da Imagem Festival (Braga), KBB Barcelona, Galerie Du 59 Rivoli (Paris) among many others places he also was most recently published in Mono, "a collection of the most talented contemporary b&w photographers" published by Gomma Books in the UK. He currently lives and works in Paris.
