On the occasion of Stéphane Duroys exhibition we will present the first comprehensive monograph of his work from the last 40 years.
The Frenchman Stéphane Duroy was born in Bizerte (Tunisia) in 1948 and lives in Paris.
He initially worked predominantly as a press photographer, and as a member of the photo agency VU shot extensive reportages for Die Zeit, Stern and Der Spiegel. He gradually moved away from commissioned journalism to projects of his own, which have been the subject of numerous thematic publications and exhibitions.

One of his particular interests is Europe and its history. He has been coming to Berlin regularly since 1989 to record the events and changes in the city.
With minimal means and a sensitive approach – always free of superficial effects – he mixes colour and black-and-white photos. On his journeys through Europe he creates silent and serious images devoid of pathos.
By dispensing with all forms of anecdote, he creates space in his photographs for a very personal kind of solitude.
