About Thierry Gourjon Visuals


Fascinated at an early age by the photographic medium and its ability to either document the world or transform it into a new representation, Thierry Gourjon-Bieltvedt, a French born photographer with family ties to Iceland and Norway, first studied medicine for two years, following his French Baccalaureat in Paris.

Frustrated by the lack of creativity associated with that field of study, he went back to his early interest, photography. After getting his CAP de Photographie at the Societe Francaise de Photography (Paris), he moved to New York in 1993. He holds a BFA in Media Arts (1996) and an MFA in Digital Imaging (2014), both from Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, New York).

Photographer, photo editor, professor and curator for the past twenty five years, he has combined freelancing, teaching and personal projects. Embracing both traditional photography and digital imaging, he explores visual language and perception with a certain levity, while always attempting to embrace beauty. He regularly exhibits and publishes his work. His work is in numerous private collections.

He has taught photography and digital imaging at Pratt Institute and La Guardia CUNY for over fifteen years, before joining La Guardia full time in 2014 where he is currently a Professor.
