With a background in Economics, David Favrod (b. 1982, Japan) came to photography somewhat by chance, after being accepted into Ecole Cantonal d’Art de Lausanne’s industrial design programme. Possibly as a result, his use of the medium is far from straightforward. Applying painting and drawing techniques inspired by Japanese comics and animation, Favrod augments his photographs with images of another reality, one in which the rules that regulate our own world do not apply. Through many-layered themes of memory and belonging, Favrod explores his place in the world, from the lives of his Japanese grandparents to the difficulties of making a home in a new country.
