Biography

Born in Nimes, France, Vincent Edmond Louis attended Central Saint Martins College of Art in London, England from which he received an unconditional offer.

Having pursued photography from a very young age, Vincent has constantly tackled various ways of pushing the boundaries of what we have come to consider traditional Fine Art Photography.

Katelijne de Backer (Armory, Scope, Lehmann Maupin) has actually named this technique “Photography Revisited”.

Whether he adds paint to enhance the image or remove the subject matter, recounts his memories by simply writing on the photograph, depicts the passing of time by tearing up and putting back together portraits, or manipulating an image to create larger-than-life installation, Vincent is continuously seeking to add a multitude of layers to the otherwise two- dimensional medium. Hence allowing the viewer to participate in the work.

When lacking subject material Vincent can be found in his studio reviving discarded everyday objects and giving them a new life as art work.

Always keeping an open mind, Vincent continuously searches for new frontiers, travelling the world to gain an insight into foreign cultures and documenting characters from different backgrounds and styles.

The viewer is invited to discover an unknown world, where the image is placed in a new setting, thus making you use your imagination.

Vincent Edmond Louis has exhibited in New York, Paris, London, Stockholm, New Delhi, Monaco, Miami, Gothenburg, Bogota, Istanbul, Geneva, Baden- Baden, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Crans-Montana and Zurich.
