Sébastien Godefroy : a sensitive photography offering humanity at sight
I kept noticing that the photographs I was taking today of these people deprived of adequate housing could have been taken 100 years ago”, explains Sébastien Godefroy.
His natural and luminous portraits tell the story of life at work, relationship and intimacy. From 2016 to 2018, he travelled the country, going from home to home, following young people to tell the story of this housing crisis and how it affects those who are faced with it. Through his photo reports, a frank and sensitive story emerges, exposing the reality of poor housing in France. At the same time, he follows the world’s diving elite. Between fascination and curiosity, he has been able to capture the demand, the concentration but also the doubt and the routine of fear, the amazing subtraction of the top athletes. Each report seems to underlie a desire: to change the way society looks at women and men. We went and met him.
