Living and working in New York City, Laurent Chevalier utilizes photography to shift the frameworks of representative imagery. Using processes and media from the past, Laurent archives for the future while simultaneously engaging contemporary social issues and promoting social justice.
Not solely a street, documentary, nor conceptual photographer -- Laurent Chevalier rather navigates the space that borders these genres. His practice is a synthesis of the known and unknown, considering the tension around the meaning of photographic expression.
Chevalier's images seek to dialogue through past, present and future, while continuously contributing new perspectives of Black America and the African Diaspora into the canon.
