About Matei Focseneanu
In 2015, after having experienced several activities in the political, musical and computer fields, I finally turned to photography after a journey in Lebanon where I spent number of hours wandering with my camera through the pacified nights of an overheated city. Back from this trip, I started CEPV school in Vevey, Switzerland.
In 2018, after three years of study, I got my diploma with the project "Ici c'est l'aquarium, dehors c'est l'océan", performed with convicts inside a Swiss prison, wearing clothing made by three fashion designers from the HEAD school in Geneva.
In 2019, after finishing my artistic photographic studies, I moved to Paris in order to achieve my education working as an assistant at Studio Zéro, then for various fashion and portrait photographers.
LensCulture rewarded my work, selecting it in Jurors’ Picks by Laura Presley. It has been exhibited in Paris by LensCulture 2019 Emerging Talent Awards and Bourse du Talent 2019.
