Eric Lafforgue…human eye…

humanism, photography, documentation, national geographic
One of the greatest gifts of photography is the magical ability to capture the essence that reminds us we are all human. Living flesh and soul in milliards of beautiful variations. There are pillars of this quest, Life and National Geographic photographers and many current including Eric, that carry this tradition to this very day… 

Born in 1964, Eric Lafforgue lives in Toulouse, France.
Ever since he was young, he has been fascinated by far away countries and travelling, and spent some time in Africa, unknowingly retracing Monfried and Joseph Kessel‘s footsteps when he was 10 years old in Djibouti, Ethiopia and Yemen.
He started taking photographs in 2006. Quickly, magazines and newspapers from all over the world began using his work for illustrations on North Korea, Papua New Guinea, the tribes of Ethiopia, etc.
In 2008, his work on the people of Papua is displayed at the prestigious VISA photojournalism festival in Perpignan.
Eric Lafforgue spends most of his time travelling the globe to share his encounters, through the perception of an ethnologist and the heart of an artist, privileging the regions or populations in danger and less usually visited countries.
