Born 1986, in eastern France. His works explore human society, with a particular emphasis on man's conflicting relationships with his environment. Without defending a Manichean view, this research takes form of visual narratives but is not of a documentary nature. If a photography series naturally becomes a document, Folk’s intention focuses more on perception and the way these places are a reflection of ourselves.
To fit his artistic approach, all pictures are made through large format photography using a view camera and colour negatives. Seeing the world through the ground glass is an introspective experience, demonstrating much similarity with painting. Therefore, such meticulous proceeding gives him the distance he needs from the subject to investigate every composition. It is also an aesthetic choice as the medium presents interesting descriptive ability.
Folk's latest series "By the silent line" received global press attention and was selected for Archifoto International Awards of Architecture Photography before being exhibited across Europe.
