About Florian ruiz


French photographer, lives and works in Tokyo for twelve years.
After studying law and history, he wanted to take a "humanistic" photographic look at desperate social worlds marked by disillusionment, to translate moods, feelings and sensations in the face of troubled universes.

Marked by the Fukushima disaster, he seeks to interrogate Photography by using assemblage, collage, superimposition and distortion in order to image the invisible danger of radioactivity. His latest work on imaging the radioactive contamination of snowy landscapes in Fukushima has been rewarded with several awards (Sony World Photography Award, Felix Schoeller Award, Talent Award, Art Photography Award).
