François Xavier GBRE

Date of birth : 1978

François-Xavier Gbré travels the world, flitting from fashion to portraits and from architecture to social commentary. He spent several years in Milan painting a social picture of multicultural Italy. He has been working on the concept of memory since 2009, recording forgotten spaces. As a mixed-race child bron to an immigrant father, he has always felt close to itinerant destinies, constently caught between to places. His photographs bear witness to the journeys and experiences of men. Gbré was awarded the second prize in the 2010 PhotoAfrica competition in Tarifa.
