Stephane Ferrero is a French photographer based in Asia. Ferrero has been immersed into arts and introduced to art history at very young age. Aware of this heritage, he always put his own work into perspective, endeavoring to push it farther with every new project. His artwork is strongly influenced by documentary and street photography, in which human beings stand at the centre of urban surroundings. Ferrero’s works also aim at challenging reality: as the world in which we now live is flooded with images, and since he himself produces pictures for commercial purposes, he naturally started to question the so-called reality of what we see. Beside his commercial works for the fashion and the advertisement industries, he continues his photography quest through several projects that have been exhibited and published regularly since 2008. Stephane Ferrero was awarded both in 2015 and 2016 a prize in the fashion category at the PHOTO MAGAZINE contest in France.
Fragments of a City,
is a ballad through the streets of Tokyo. The camera is a tool to capture some details of that megapolis. Here, the purpose is not to give to the viewer a description of Tokyo, to tell him/her how it should be seen, but just to give some hints, some details, some fragments of that city. In a way, it is also a tribute to one of the masters of the street photography: Daido Moriyama who published a photographic book named “Fragments”. At last, all the photographs have been shot with film cameras that are more prompt to capture atmosphere.
