Stéphane Lavoué: Into the Wild
Five years ago, French photographer Stéphane Lavoué discovered a charming corner of the United States. Located in the state of Vermont, it is known as the Northeast Kingdom. This little area is characterized by the wild ruggedness of the landscape, as well as by its residents, who are the focus of the series.
Stéphane Lavoué was born in Mulhouse, France in 1976. He has an engineering degree in timber industries and lived for two years in Amazonas, Brazil. In 2001 he returned to France and decided to start working as a photographer. He is located in Paris and collaborates with the main French media, as well as foreign magazines. He is well known for his exceptional portraits.
For the Northeast Kingdom series, Stéphane Lavoué used his Leica M (Typ 240), with 50 mm and 35 mm Summilux lenses, as well as an old 28 mm Summicron.
Northeast Kingdom will be shown in May and June in Sète (France) at the Images Singulières Photo Festival and at the new Leica Gallery in Paris from June to August 2015.
