Yohann is a traveler who captures spontaneous situations encountered over the course of his trips through various cities around the world. Most people know him to be a “Gypsy Photographer”, free-spirited in his ways of working.
Yohann currently lives and works between Lisbon and Paris.
As one wades through Yohann’s work, reality takes shape through the spectator’s imagination. The boundaries between function and reality are blurred; the street and all things ordinary, moments unimportant to most, anonymous figures, all of these transformed into a stage filled with beautiful, decadent characters redefined in the ambiguous realm of “cool”. Snapshots of the enjoyment of a generation are amplified under the photographer’s lens, gathered and documented in a manner that captures the values of young adults caught in perpetual adolescence.
The work of Yohann is an illustrated feature of real places and events. There is no montage and from a technical perspective, Yohann is a strict and rigorous photographer. The atmosphere, lighting, situations, movements, the millisecond he chooses to capture represent his magical and bizarre vision of the world.
His photographs have been used around the globe for commercial and editorial use, appeared in blogs, newspapers, magazines, brochures, advertisements, travel guidebooks, and textbooks.
