He started taking photographs in 2006. Quickly, magazines from all over the world began using his work for illustrations on North Korea, Papua New Guinea, the tribes of Ethiopia, etc.
A little about himself:
Born in 1964, Eric Lafforgue lives in Toulouse, France. Ever since he was young, he has been fascinated by far away countries and travelling, and spent some time in Africa, unknowingly retracing Monfried and Joseph Kesselʼs footsteps when he was 10 years old in Djibouti, Ethiopia and Yemen.
Eric Lafforgue spends most of his time travelling the globe to share his encounters, through the perception of an ethnologist and the heart of an artist, privileging the regions or populations in danger and less usually visited countries.
For those of you who are interested : Eric works with Hasselblad H4D-50, Leica M6, Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III and 5D mark II.
