Biography

 

Born in France and currently living in Bangkok, Guillaume holds a Master of Arts in Cinematography. He started to develop an insatiable interest for photography during his studies in Paris.

 

When he first travelled in Asia in 2009, Guillaume became involved in documentary photography and began to work as a self-taught freelance photographer in 2011. He spent many months in Nepal during which he worked with several NGOs and conducted a research on the impact of exile on the daily life of refugees.

 

In 2013, his photo essay on the Bhutanese refugees was awarded the first prize of the Paris Match "Photo-reportage étudiant". After completing his studies, he carried out different film and photography projects in Southeast Asia that lead him step by step to a new work perspective.

 

Nowadays, his work not only aims to portray social issues in a documentary style, but also tends to develop a more subjective approach based on his life experience and his personal universe.
