Frédéric Lecloux is an self-taught photographer, a workshop teacher at the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographies in Arles and at in Kathmandu. He was born in 1972 in Brussels, Belgium and lives in France.

Consciously or not, each of his series originates from the question of loss. On the routes of Nicolas Bouvier, in a profoundly mutating Nepal, in a reminiscence of Belgium or facing the enigma of parenthood, photography is no longer about telling the World as it is seen. Henceforth summonsed to relieve from the loss, photography becomes a poetic solution to inhabit the World, and an alibi to draw a universe that be more acceptable than the real one.

His work is published by Le Bec en l’air in Marseilles and distributed by Vu’ agency in Paris. He is the author of, among other books, “Brumes à venir” (2012), “L’Usure du Monde” (2008), and “Katmandou 2058” (2003).
