Frederic Monceau is a French photographer and art director based in Paris.
Even before he entered the field of photography, he had long been drawn to the world of creative expression. At age 21, he published his first book, “Le Coeur entre deux chaises,” and he is currently working on his second book, “La tailleuse de ballet.” It was only after gaining experience as a writer that he discovered a passion for photography.
Following in the footsteps of brilliant photographers such as Newton, Avedon and Bourdin, he entered the selective world of international photographers, and he is now considered one of Paris’s most talented photographers. He has worked with the most important publications, namely, Vogue Magazine, GQ Magazine, Lui Magazine, Lash Magazine, Normal Magazine, Chasseur Magazine, and many others. He has worked in collaboration with the most renowned model agencies like Elite Models, Ford Models, M Management, etc. His photography has been widely acclaimed in the fashion press, and he has done high-profile exhibitions as well.
In November 2014, an exhibit of his photos was presented in Maurice and Stefanie Renoma’s “Galerie Boutique” in Paris. Some of these pieces sold for fifteen thousand Euros. In May 2015, he showed another exhibition of my photos in the same gallery, titled “Chelsea Hotel” and inspired by the famous Chelsea Hotel in New York.
Due to my diverse skills, I was also recruited by the agency SIPA, through which he traveled to cover stories on famous individuals and their families across the globe in locales ranging from Paris, to Tel Aviv, to Rio de Janeiro. This coverage has been published in top-selling French magazines like Gala and Paris Match.
