Swiss photographer and cinematographer born in 1987, he studied geography and anthropology at the University of Fribourg. He works on the links between spaces and those who evolve in it, questioning in particular the notion of decor and what is behind it.
He regularly leaves his everyday life, voluntarily losing himself for a time in a new town, somewhere different. In this way, he pay homage to the ordinariness of a place and to the banality of reality, observing what happens when nothing is happening.
François Vermot is currently working on its next projet in movie studios.
The serie Palais des Nations has been exhibited at the Prix Photoforum 2016 (Biel), the vfg Young Swiss Talent Award 2017 (Zürich, Basel, Lausanne, Stuttgart), Festival Manifesto (Toulouse), and will be showed at the Centre de la Photographie (Genève) in 2018.
