1985 – Dorian François is based in Paris. Since 2005, he has travelled extensively throughout Asia where he has been working on numerous long-term projects. François’s intense desire to travel has become firmly linked to a need to share his stories through the medium of photography and writing, wherein the notion of time is the principle element.
His work on the Indian island of “Majuli” has been shown at several galleries in Paris, the Phnom Penh Photo Festival and at the Delhi Photo Festival. His Mongolian work “Ulan Bator” was shown at the Angkor Photo Festival in Siem Reap, and short-listed twice for the Bourse du Talent Award. More recently, he was a finalist for the prestigious Prix Roger Pic for his series on China, “Solitudes”.
He is actually designing and self-publishing a series of ten books called “Short-Stories”.
