Fabien Voileau

Photographs

Fabien Voileau is a 32 years old French photographer. After more than a decade of tweaking his style, he has seen his work gain notoriety in recent years in Europe. Self-taught, his career is original and surprising. Fabien left the school system very young. He spent his youth at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, on the west coast of France, more interested in motorcycle rides, surfing sessions and fishing parties than by the school. He began photography by borrowing a camera Canon AE1 from his father in 1980. In 2007, Fabien Voileau decided to leave the French countryside that saw him grow up to live in Australia. It will be a major turning point in his life. He is fascinated by the calm deserts and remote areas. A magical sensation that he will now look around the world: California, Middle East, North Africa, and Dharamsala, home of the Dalai Lama, he was a student for a week. The work of Fabien Voileau reflects the desire of escape of the young people of the whole world. Deeply altruistic, he praises the discovery of the other. His photographs allow to feel the simple happiness of astonishment, the joy of the different tomorrows, the intoxication of the great outdoors. When not traveling, Fabien Voileau now divides his time between Paris, France, and Auckland, New Zealand. He still has his father's camera AE1 camera. Fabien Voileau is a member of the Hans Lucas studio and Les Others' Fresh Air Club
