Marc Thirouin is a French photographer living between Paris and Oslo.
After studying arts in Paris, he developed its own photographic world where poetic stories and staged images prevail, thus inviting the viewers to reflect on their own life experiences. 
Later on, he went to live in Scandinavia for a few years - more specifically in Tønsberg, Norway, then in Oslo. With this migration, the photographer reached a major milestone in its work and artistic vision. That radical change in scenery transformed his routine and allowed him to renew and refine his sensibility through the lens of his photographic universe, now straddling two cultures. And so, that Nordic immersion enriched his style, infusing it with even greater oneiric and cinematic aesthetics.

 

Marc Thirouin est un photographe français qui vit entre Paris et Oslo. 
Après des études artistiques menées à Paris, il développe son univers photographique avec poésie et se plaît à nous entraîner parmi ses histoires mises en images,
où se reflètent nos propres questionnements. En cela, son départ en Scandinavie - plus précisément à Oslo, marque un tournant décisif dans son travail et sa perception artistique.
Ce dépaysement radical le plonge dans un univers aux antipodes de ses habitudes, renouvelant ses perspectives émotionnelles et sa démarche photographique. 
Cette immersion durant plusieurs années le pousse à enrichir son style, en mélangeant ces deux cultures pour créer ses images avec une empreinte particulière.
Son propos poétique et ses idées singulières se développent, et se parent d’une esthétique aux accents oniriques.
