“Photography is a way to express our curiosity about life and its expressions, beyond cultural and language barriers.”
Stéphanie Borcard ans Nicolas Métraux are freelance documentary photographers recently based in Bangkok. Working in Asia several months a year, they like to immerse themselves in a country and quietly photograph their way through it. They work on personal projects, influenced by their travels and by other forms of expression such as books, paintings and movies. Human interactions are at the heart of what they do: it shapes their process as well as the content of their photographs.
Their recent series such as “China – Cutting Love”, “A Bosnian Spring” and “Studentenverbindungen” all tend to focus on young adults and their relationship to society.
Their work has been published in swissinfo, Le Temps, Verve Photo, F8 Magazine, DayFour Magazine and has won numerous international awards. It has been showcased in Fribourg, Paris, Toulouse and Perpignan. “China – Love Cutting” was exhibited during the Month of Photography 2013 in Sofia, Bulgaria and screened during the Georgetown festival 2013 in Penang, Malaysia.
