Franck Vogel

Born in 1977 - France


In 2002, after obtaining a Masters degree in business and marketing from AgroParisTech, Franck Vogel decided to set off around the world with only his backpack and Canon camera. Over the course of a year, he explored dirt paths and rugged roads, and sailed many seas and oceans, all by means of transport worthy of Jules Verne: wooden canoe, sailboat, truck, camel, bike...and of course his legs. His main goal: human encounters.

Franck Vogel currently works as a freelance photographer focusing on global social and environmental issues. In 2004, on assignment for Patrimoine sans Frontières (a French NGO dedicated to preserving endangered cultural heritage sites), his photos depicted the restoration of unique Orthodox churches in Voskopojë, Albania as well as the last of their founders, the Vlachs. This work has been shown in France and Albania through exhibitions, conferences, books and magazines (Le Monde magazine, Courrier International,...). Later, while shooting in the Ukraine, Franck Vogel took photos of Crimean Tatars and their tough post-soviet return to their motherland after having been deported by Stalin in May 1944.

Since 2007, Franck Vogel has focused on the unique relationship between Man & Nature in an effort to illustrate that it's possible to live in harmony. In a world where most global reports represent the worst, Franck decided to bring hope. As an example, his epic work about the Bishnoi community in India tells the story of some of the world's first environmentalists. This work has been published all over the globe, including in GEO magazine's special 30th anniversary issue in 2009, as well as photos showcased in Parisian Metro stations in 2011 and 2012 (15 million visitors / first exhibition in France produced with eco-friendly vinyl and inks).

His recent work to denounce the Albino killings in Tanzania has been featured in magazines and exhibited around the world (Rencontres d'Arles, Visa pour l'Image, Pingyao Photo Festival in China…), and Michel Lafon Publishing released his book on Albinos in 2012. His latest book "Zeru, Zeru" is available on blurb.com.

Franck Vogel is currently focusing on global transboundary water tensions and has completed stories on the Nile and Brahmaputra, for the Saint-Brieuc Photoreporter Festival (France) in 2012 and 2014. Stories were subsequently published by GEO, Stern and Le Monde Diplomatique. Since 2011, Franck has been an ambassador for Green Cross, Mikhaïl Gorbatchev's NGO for the environment.
