Nicolas Métraux is a Swiss photographer based in Bangkok. After working a few years as an architect, he redirected his professional career towards portraiture, reportage and documentary photography.

He is working and cosigning his images as a team with Stéphanie Borcard. Together, they mostly work on personal projects, influenced by their extensive travels and by different forms of expression such as literature, arts and independent films.
Through a subtle approach of the story, they explore the margins of social issues. Their recent series focus on the relation between individual and society, helping them not only to have a better understanding of the world we are living in, but also to question who they are.

Curiosity and passion for others led them to different countries around Asia and recently to Bosnia-and-Herzegovina. A book designed by Smith Design in London and published by BENTELI Publishers, Switzerland, will finalize three-year project in the Balkans and will be released in 2015.
