I was born in Paris France in 1985.
After studying Communication and spending two years working as an Art Director in a advertising company, Emeric Fohlen traveled for a year across Asia from Beijing to Bangkok. It is then that he confirmed his passion for reportage and decided to switch to photojournalism.
Back in Paris in 2012, he started to work as a news photographer on political and social themes. In 2014, he begins a long-term project where he documents how urban art is a means of emancipation for Tunisian youth.
More generally, his documentary work focuses on identity issues (individual or collective) within cultural movements.
