Stephan Gladieu

Born in Bagneux, France, Stephan Gladieu began his career as a war photographer in 1989, criss-crossing through, among other places, Europe, Central Asia, China, India and the Middle East.

Today he produces reports and portrait series for international magazines but focuses mainly on his personal and artistic work through portrait series whose DNA is the color and rigorous composition.

His last series are mainly done in Asia and Africa, where he bears witness to the human condition as in his series Hereros, Maï Maï, Homo Detritus and North Korea.

He likes the iconic character of an image, its frontality, its readability and the boundary between real and unreal.
