Born in Paris, Jean-Christophe Huet developed a passion for travelling to far-flung destinations at a very early age. He chose to specialise his academic studies in the ethno-geography of the Tropical world and spent a period of living in the bend of the Niger river in Mali.
More recently, he decided to make a photographic record of Vanuatu threatened traditions. His book "Vanuatu" was published in 2009 (Michel Husson Ed.). In the last years he took photos in Ghana, Ethiopia and South Africa.
