Jean-Sébastien Monzani is a Swiss and French self-taught freelance photographer and graphic-designer born in 1975 who is specialized in portrait photography. Elegance, simplicity, a strong sense of composition and emotions are key elements in his work. His images are often constructed as photo-series - something between fashion photography and movie storyboards. Since he often tries to convey an atmosphere in his photos, he mainly shoots on-location, almost exclusively in Lausanne (Switzerland) where he lives.
He currently works in Lausanne, Switzerland, as a freelance photographer and graphic designer. His commercial work includes illustration, websites, posters, magazine layout, brochures, flyers, CDs and photos matching his own artistic interests.
He likes to cite Antoine de Saint-Exupéry:
"Perfection in design is not achieved when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to remove."
