Clement’s passion for photography started when his father gave him the first film camera at 17 years old. Then, he shaped his eye and built a personal approach based on human perspective during several travelings, especially a one year trip to meet local communities in Asia, Melanesia and South America. He worked over 10 years in communication industry which provide him a strong visual background and original storytelling.
