French. Born in 1963 in Douai. Lives in Paris.

In addition to his permanent work for the press, Bertrand Desprez has continued to work on personal projects, in which he has created series exploring unconventional subjects that raise questions about society.

Receiving numerous awards, and having published and exhibited a series on teenagers in France, he has been widely recognised for his work. This visual survey in black and white is both elegant and modest and represents discreet and “ordinary,” unspectacular moments that in concert represent a fragile and sensitive portrait of a generation. In colour, he continued his work on Japan, organising the country around the concept of “four seasons” for a subtle collection void of all exoticism that focuses on the “small nothings” that nevertheless speak volumes.
