Vincent Mercier is a French photographer, born in the 70s, he is currently living between Paris and the rest of the world.
Following Science studies, he turned to photography to explore the sensitive side of things and to understand the vernacular environment. Fascinated by travel and modernism, his solitary wanderings capture his silent and solar vision of the fortuitous scenes in the various cities that he “encounters”, in which the human presence does not manifest frontally. Despite an almost geometrical and sometimes strict photo composition, there is nothing artificial or cold in his approach. Thus he produced the images of the first YSL retrospective exhibition catalog for the inauguration of the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation. Nomadic reporter, he is featured in publications such as AD Magazine and Air France Magazine. His vintage inspired interpretation of Los Angeles is part of the first edition of the “Portraits de Villes” series.
