"Exactly as movie directors simulate a frame with their hands to understand what the spectator will see, I wanted to make portraits of normal people, like you and me, with their distinct traits, their clothes and their world, their reality in the background.

Thierry Predhom, 39, French-born, has lived in 7 different countries and resides in Vevey, Switzerland since 2016. « I was always passionate about photography and audiovisual arts. In this hyper-connected world, dominated by the beauty diktat and the constant war of « likes » and « more » on social networks, I set out with my wife for a world tour in 2015 with this idea of unity and universality, crossing more than 30 countries on 4 continents, to capture the natural and unique beauty of each subject, in their worlds, their daily lives. »
