The story of a photographer
Born in Geneva (Switzerland), Cedric acquired his first camera in the 1980's and set out on a first major trip to the Sahara in 1987. It is a revelation since he lived abroad for more than twenty years before returning to settle in 2015 on the shores of Lake Geneva.
His photography records with great sensitivity the subjects that fascinate him: travel, architecture, routines of everyday life, portraits and more particularly wildlife.
It is not surprising that one of his photos contains a beautiful model resembling a formidable lion, while on another, you find an elephant attentive as the most cautious of mothers.His portfolio is diversified, as are his travels: from Buddhist temples in Cambodia to the migration of zebras in Kenya; from Greenland icebergs to Yunnan rice paddies, or Antarctic king penguins to the stunning ambiance of the Palio de Siena.
He received national and international photography awards and got the opportunity to show his work in Australia, Colombia & Switzerland. Since 2022 he is a member of "Collectif Imago" in Valais, Switzerland.
Cedric speaks French, English and Spanish., so feel free to contact him directly.
