Continuing our dedication to China and photography, we are proud to present the thrilling work of France-born photographer François Trézin. After studying Graphic Design in Paris and Fine Arts in Nantes and Cergy-Pontoise in his home country, François took the leap and moved to Asia and in particular Japan, where he developed his art and cultivated his passion for detail and the Asian culture through working with Japanese photographers. In 2007 he established his studio in Shanghai and later on teamed up with studio director LiWen. Their large studio is located in the city’s center, in the North of Jing’An District.
His latest project goes by the strange name A.S.A.D.K.D.A. (A Sculpture A Day Keeps Doctor Away). Here is what he has to say about it: “A.S.A.D.K.D.A. is a visual research on the relationship between people and objects as they develop in daily life. What is of particular interest to me is the moment when the object’s functional and aesthetic traits shift from their original concept -sometimes by accident, sometimes by voluntary means, the object is not what it looks like to be. From a professional and personal point of view I am pushed to re-thinking the object all the time. This series is mainly about how people I know or complete strangers give new meaning to things, how they re-interpret them”.
