Stéphane Duroy


French. Born in 1948 in Bizerte, Tunisa. Lives in Paris.

Initially a press photographer, Stéphane Duroy little by little moved away from the media to develop his personal projects that eventually grew into books and exhibitions.

With few resources, a subtle treatment, and without effects, he takes colour photographs and mixes them with black and white ones to explore a twentieth century Europe scarred by two atrocious wars whose memory he questions. His travel throughout Europe is marked by a voiceless and serious tonality, yet without pathos, creating a space where the exclusion of anecdotes leaves room for a form of desolation.

Following an approach that is both documentary and conceptual, his work is a disenchanted record of the twentieth century and its contemporary consequences.
