French photographer of Asian descent, Tiane Doan na Champassak (1973), based in Provence, was first recognized for his documentary work (Agence Vu) before exploring a more artistic approach. His photography is driven by a fascination for gender identity issues, revealing a decidedly aesthetic sensibility. For each body of work, print or publication, he seeks out the most appropriate techniques, materials and formats. In 2011, he self-published two books employing vernacular photography found online and in 2012 he published Tantra, The Father of Pop Dance and Spleen and Ideal. He received the SCAM portfolio prize and was Laureate of the Villa Médicis Hors-les-Murs program, both in 2001.
