LA VIE DES AUTRES
LA VIE DES AUTRES is a personal, aesthetic, and poetic visual story by Fabien Voileau curated by Juliette Buffard Scalabre that tells the synergy between man and the elements, from Australia to Japan, passing through the United States and France.
A self-taught artist, Fabien has led an original and surprising career. He left school at an early age, preferring instead to spend his youth exploring the French Atlantic coast. Motorbike rides and surf sessions proved to be significantly more engaging than maths class. In 2007, Fabien decided to quit the french country- side he grew up with to relocate to Australia; thus embarking on one of his greatest adventures to date. Inspired by the endless deserts and open spaces, Fabien now searches to rediscover this magical feeling in every corner of the globe: California, Middle-East, Africa, New Zealand etc. Fabien’s work reflects the inherent desire to escape that young people experience worldwide. A deeply altruistic person, he loves to discover and meet new people. His photographs allow us to feel the joy of unexpectedness, and the freedom of open landscapes.
