The extremely tall artist and son of french actors Brigitte and Bernard Dimanche, Duncan was born and raised in Paris. Inspired by his dad’s love of film photography he started showing interest in photography at a very young age using his father’s medium format camera.
At the age of 16 he moved to a boarding school in England where he continued experimenting with film and where he quickly realized that capturing a moment and freezing it on a piece of film is pure magic. He then moved to the US where he attended film photography classes and had access to a darkroom for 3 years.
Since then he has traveled to more than 20 countries and has added digital cameras to his arsenal.
“Being a photographer makes you look at people and the world in a different way. You learn to pay attention to details and use the imperfections of the world to their advantage. Putting a smile on someone’s face because he just looked at a photo you took of them is priceless. Making someone want to travel because they saw one of your photos is one of the reasons why I love doing what I do.”
Capturing the natural look and authenticity of a place or its people is what he aims for on an everyday basis.
