Staring at the sea, standing on the beach

After his studies in analysis and economical politics, Chau Cuong Lê devoted some time to travelling. He worked as scrivener, then for the SAMU Social and attended a course in photo-journalism at the EMI-CFD (Paris) in 2003. Then, he co-founded the BaSoH group and participated to several projects: he made a report for the Secours Catholique, covered the 20th anniversary of the Berlin Wall fall and the European Social Forums in Paris and London and organized photographic workshops in schools...The collective activity ended in 2009.
Today, he deals with advertisement and corporate orders and press reports. He also develops personal projects about the notion of intimacy and family bonds, questioning the notion of waiting, suspended time.
Since 2015, he is a member of the Studio Hans Lucas, co-opted by Wilfrid Estève.
 
In Deauville, he draws the portrait of the city through its inhabitants.
He met teenagers and decided to reproduce the off-season atmophere of the city: the feeling of waiting and emptiness.
