François Nadeau

I moved in Beijing China in 2017. I fell in love with the culture and its people. Travelling around this country, the possibilities of photos are extraordinary! And one thing i like is to share my love and knowledge of photography.

I’m a professional photographer from Montreal, Quebec. I was selected and invited 6 times at the “World Photographers focusing on Beijing”. Did some work in Turkey for the project “Izmir, a legacy for tomorrow” organized by the Arkas Art Center and my photos were exposed at the Arkas Museum. I also participated at Izmir photo days. In 2014, I won first prize at the international photo contest « 2014 Chinese dream in the Eyes of Foreign Friends ».

I have been a teacher with, Les ateliers photographiques de Montréal and has organized workshops in schools and summer camps for kids.

I have a  book “China: photographic narrative in the Middle Kingdom” that is published with Les Editions Cayennes. I work as a documentary photographer for Hans Lucas Agency and ZUMA Press.

I am now living in Beijing, China
