Who is Draz?
A self-taught photographer, Draz learns his trade in the backstreets, with his eye on the camera, in search of the decisive moment. At the school of street photography, he was influenced by artists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson for his love of composition, or Saul Leiter for his graphic and colourful vision.
As he progresses, he develops an original vision and an artistic intention. With the human being at the heart of his career, he naturally turns to portraits, often soft and poetic. Different series are born according to opportunities and inspirations.
Today, in constant search of freedom, he frees himself from codes to develop his creativity. New technologies, old photographic processes, Draz mixes genres and realizes an inner journey where each step is, for him, more essential than the destination.
The artist Draz exhibits at L’Alcôve gallery from August 30th to September 18th 2022 with “Infinite”: more information here
