ABOUT

JoŽl Odesser is a self-taught French photographer. He inherited his interest in photography from his grand-father Henri Odesser who was a professional photographer in the region of Annecy, France, and has been grounded the basics of the art from early childhood.

Trained in engineering in France, JoŽl developed photographic skills and his portfolio since 2003 while travelling across the Americas and Greater Asia. Photography became intimately connected to his passion for travel, as he likes to freeze memory of remote places and contrasting cultures through still images.

Living in France, Canada, New York and now Hong Kong has led him to find a true interest in urban sceneries both as an outsider and insider, providing a medium for him to pursue Photography as an Art, and as an experiment.

Feel free to download JoŽl's portfolio and artist's CV.
