"Photography to me is a way to express compassion and the responsibility that I feel for humanity."
Clément´s considers his work to meet between documentary and photojournalism with a strong focus on humanity. While showing social issues that are affecting our society today, his images are emotionally driven by telling people´s stories through his experience with them. Currently working on diverse photo documentary primarily based on refugees & immigration issues, all of his current projects are currently personally chosen and funded. All finished projects are intended for publications and exhibitions.
Although photographing injustices is not enough for Clément. This may help to spread awareness and taking an action towards the overall humanitarian cause but most of the time it does not help to provide or to assist with direct basic individual needs on the spot. As the photographer gets involved and creates relationship with most of the people he photographs, he wants to help them with their situation. Please check behind the photos for fundraising support.
