Investigating for the past 30 years film and photographic territories, Stephane Sednaoui’s work spans the genres of music videos, photojournalism, portrait and fashion photography and is now directed towards art and cinematographic projects.
Known for his work as a music video director, he is the author of the critically acclaimed “Give It Away” (Red Hot Chili Peppers), “Sly” (Massive Attack), “Mysterious Ways” (U2), “Big Time sensuality” (Björk), “Fever” (Madonna), regarded as some of the most memorable of the medium. In 2005, Palm Pictures published a retrospective of his work, “The Work of Director Stéphane Sednaoui”.
Equally an established photographer, Stéphane Sednaoui has covered as a photojournalist such monumental events as the Romanian Revolution of 1989 and the 2001 attack of the World Trade Center. He has also been a regular contributor to Vogue Italia, Vogue China, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, Interview and Visionaire as a fashion and portrait photographer.
Over the years, increasingly drawn towards non-commercial, more personal projects, Stephane Sednaoui has, in an ongoing process, redefined his artistic approach. Combining new, existing, and primarily unseen projects, his work has been exhibited recently at the MoMA, New York – the 9/11 Memorial Museum, New York – the Brooklyn Museum, New York – the Barbican Gallery, London – Le Grand Palais, Paris – the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and Sam Art Projects Foundation, Paris.
