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, the will of studying this art led me to the CEPV school in Vevey, Switzerland. There, fed by many incredible encounters, my practice finally turned toward fashion photography.
In 2018, after finishing my artistic photographic studies, I moved to Paris in order to achieve my education working as an assistant at Studio Zéro and then for various fashion and portrait photographers.
Nowadays, I am promoting my diploma achievement, "Ici c'est l'aquarium, dehors c'est l'océan" (2018), which is the result of an invitation for women inmates to express themselves through the language of fashion photography. More specifically, I try to get interesting opportunities to exhibit these images in order to connect these inmates to the public eye.
