About Sylvain Demange (FR)
The need to photograph came to Sylvain during a visit to Peru in 2005. Initially, it was to bring back memories … Then gradually he felt the need to spend time with people , to focus on their daily lives, to build personal relationships by offering to give evidence through the medium of photography . His photographic approach is based on the artwork of personal experiences , bringing a humanistic perspective on scenes of everyday life in constant empathy with his subject .
Sylvain curiosity motivates him , he is fascinated by the discovery of unknown worlds and always differents. Sylvain is also heavily involved in social witness , through evoking subjects suffering and exclusion in our modern society : the difficulties of traditional fishermen facing the fishing industry and the fight for the dignity of persons in situations of exclusion through the current housing rights in France . Sylvain , 35, lives and works in Paris.
