Nicolas Métraux is a Swiss photographer based in Bangkok. After working several years as an architect, he redirected his professional career towards documentary photography. Since 2007, he has spent most of his time in Asia, particularly in China. He works with and cosigns his images with Stéphanie Borcard. Together, they mostly work on personal projects, influenced by their extensive travels and by different forms of expression such as literature, arts, and independent films. Through a subtle approach to the story, they explore the margins of social issues. Their recent series focuses on the relation between individuals and society, helping them not only to have a better understanding of the world we are living in, but also to question who they are. Curiosity and passion for others led them to different countries around Asia and recently to Bosnia-and-Herzegovina. A book designed by Smith Design in London and published by GOST Publishers, London, will finalize three-year project in the Balkans and will be released in 2015.
