Christophe Lavaud aka Chris

French photographer born in Paris in April 1964, he is currently based in the south-west of France. At a very young age, he began
his photographic journey by immersing himself in the books of the greatest photographers, with already a pronounced taste
for black and white images. As a teenager, he became aware of his affinity for the visual arts and then worked for several decades
in the media world as a creative. In 2015, he decided to devote himself to photography as a self-taught artist.
In January 2022, he became a member of Divergence Images, an independent platform of freelance photographers, which distributes
some of his work. Since then, while continuing his "news" activity, he focuses on a more personal genre of documentary photography.
He regularly responds to commissions, but in his own work, he strives to magnify reality, through the practice of instinctive
photography where his perception of things and his state of mind take on all their importance.
