*** VERSION FRANÇAISE ***

Frédéric Séguin, 29 years old, photographer born and based in Montreal. International Business graduate from HEC Montreal, currently doing a Master's degree in Management of International Development and Humanitarian Action  and former co-founder of the organization Shoot to Help. 

On April 26th 2015, I was a witness and almost a victim of the earthquake in Nepal. In this tension of fear and consternation, the solidarity and resilience of the Nepalese people were a catalyst for my work. This human hope through so much distress opened my eyes on the duality of every situation.

Since this experience in Nepal, I have oriented my work on documentary photography, always trying to show human beings with its dignity in difficult situations. I have also worked covering the refugee crisis in Lebanon in Europe for the past three years. My most recent projects were about the cultural and landscape transformation in Tibet.
