Stéphane Gizard is French photographer, living and working in Paris.
Best known for portraits of young people created for his “Modern Lovers” series, photographer Stéphane Gizard’s gentle, kindly eye manages to capture the beauty and fragility of his subjects, which have included many celebrities and strangers. His work reveals their sensuality and brings out the expression of a truth; an intimate questioning. In parallel to working closely with the press and the advertising industry, Stéphane has spent ten years photographing a cross-section of 17-20 year olds; from his perspective the defining and decisive phase of one's life sitting at the end of adolsescence and at the beginning of adulthood. A period of self-reflection and fragility.
