Julien Lombardi

Born 1980 in Marseille, France.
Lives and works in Marseille, France, and Mexico City, Mexico.
Julien Lombardi, who has a master’s degree in ethnology, is freely inspired by his training to lead visual investigations based on long-term immersions in countries, notably Armenia, Mexico, and Egypt, before pursuing his formal research in the studio. He seeks to scramble the codes of photographic authenticity by experimenting with image layouts that offer new narrative forms. His first book, L’Inachevé, was published by Le Bec en l’air in 2017. His work is part of the collections of the Centre National des Arts Plastiques, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, and the Château d’Eau
