Before becoming a professional photographer, Erwan Iliou was trained in the construction industry. This initial professional experience allowed him to develop technical knowledge of construction methods and an expert view. These skills combined with a photographer’s keen eye and perspective are what allow him to grasp the soul of a place or building and translate it into images. Drawn to architecture regardless of the time period or age of buildings, whether firmly contemporary or filled with history, Erwan Iliou finds it a constant source of inspiration.
The passionate photographer also enjoys making people the focus of his photos. Building trust with his clients, getting to know them, discussing their background, story and goals - for Erwan Iliou, it’s important to focus on human relationships with the goal of conveying each person’s personality and uniqueness through his portraits.
What motivates him in photography is the diversity of assignments he has the opportunity to take on, with always a new story to be written, each completely different than the last. This has led him to event photography, which also has a significant place in Erwan Iliou’s work. There again, the photographer embraces the ongoing encounters as much in terms of relationships as well as in the artistic and professional spheres. The plurality of genres and inspirations are key to his work.
