French. Born in 1948 in Bizerte, Tunisa. Lives in Paris.
Represented by the Agence VU'. 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.
Once again, Stéphane Duroy went on the trail of tragedies that marked the twentieth century Europe. Here he brings back the memory of the forced exile of many Portuguese. Signed copy Fligranes (2009) French / Portuguese 40 pages 21 x 26 cm 978-2-35046-167-0
