Simon Beraud, born in February 1993 near Paris, based in Brussels.
Passionate about the image and the sound since my childhood, I discovered the practice of photography as a teenager, doing amateur reportages for my father’s magazine.
In 2013 studying music abroad, I started photographing in a more personal way, quit music. Partly self-taught, I also learnt from other photographers.
Around 2016, I worked in an anonymous photographs store in Paris, which now feels like an interesting time - in terms of learning (editing, sequencing photographs, the image itself…)
In 2017 I started to develop various projects between Czechia, Greece and India.
I lived in Prague from 2017 to 2018 and then in Athens until the end of 2018; I regularly travel to those places, and also photograph "at home", in Belgium.
I generally work in environments which I can relate to, and based on my intuition.
Often brought to photograph life in the fringes of society, I’m interested in portraying people or places that challenge me.
