Guest photographer for Planches Contact

Born on March 3, 1963 in Paris, Klavdij Sluban spent his childhood in Livold (Slovenia). He developed a passion for photography as a teenager. In 1986, he obtained a master's degree in Anglo-American literature, did an internship in black and white printing in Georges Fèvre's studio, and then traveled. In 1992, he returned to France and devoted himself to photography.
Klavdij Sluban travels successively in the Balkans, around the Black Sea, in the former Soviet Union, around the Baltic Sea, in the Caribbean islands, in Jerusalem, in Latin America and in Asia-China (by the Trans-Siberian train), Japan, Indonesia-Jawa, Bali, Sulawesi.
From 1995 to 2005, he led a reporting workshop with teenagers at the Fleury-Mérogis Youth Detention Center (Essonne). Henri Cartier-Bresson came regularly to encourage them, as well as other photographers such as Marc Riboud and William Klein.
Since 1998, continuing this project, he has been working in a similar way with young inmates of detention centers in the former Soviet Union. In 2000, he created a photographic workshop in Celje (Slovenia) in the only prison for young inmates in the country as well as in Krusevac and Valjevo (Serbia).
The Bar du Soleil, the casino, the racetrack, the beaches, the cabins, the boards...these are the places that have built the Deauville novel. Klavdij Sluban goes through them in images guided by the writings of Georges Simenon, Guillaume Apollinaire, Joseph Kessel, Colette or Sacha Guitry. Each photo is accompanied by a quote creating an association rather than an illustration with the places and atmosphere of Deauville.
Open air exhibition, Avenue Lucien Barrière.
Free access from October 19th to January 5th.
