In The Picture: Alexis Pazoumian

After completing a two-year course in a graphics school, I turned to photography which has always been a true object of passion for me.
Last year, I spend six months living in one of Rio de Janeiro’s favelas, and it was my first photo-report. After I went back to France, I was finalist in a contest by “Paris Match” for photojournalism students, and I also did an exhibit to show and expose my works from Brazil. I am now a freelance photographer and movie maker.

We’d like to thank Alexis for sharing his photos. Visit his website for more of his work
