 About Cuong

                                                    Bio
French photographer. Cuong Lê has a background as a photojournalist as well as a studio light technician.
Now, he's spliting his time between artistic residencies, advertising communication, corporate assignments, and press commissions.

His photographic works are recurrently embodied in the rhythm of an immersive and sensorial walk. They question his own intimacy in connection with a territory, questioning the relationship to time and expectation, notably through the prism of youth or the relationship to nature.
