About
30 septembre 2014

Through photography, installation and video, Yann Gross explores, often in an offbeat ways, how humanity shapes its environment and develops a sense of identity. His images regularly deal with the construction of the imaginary and a certain desire for escape.

After crossing the Rhone Valley on a moped in search of the American dream in Switzerland (Horizonville), revealing the abstract beauty of avalanches in the Alps (Lavina) and participating in the emergence of skateboard culture in Uganda (Kitintale), Yann goes to live in Brazil to work on reforestation projects. The time he spends in the forest nourishes his reflections and has a lasting influence on his artistic practice (The Jungle Book & Aya) : since then he divides his time between the Amazon, Spain and Switzerland. He regularly collaborates with various communities and has been involved, among other things, in the creation of audiovisual workshops for Guarani and Kaiowá youth in Mato Grosso, Brazil.

His work is exhibited worldwide and published in magazines like Aperture, Colors, Frieze, The National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine, Die Zeit Magazine & Das Magazin among many others.
