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, 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 (2013), both from Pratt Institute (Brooklyn).
Editorial photographer, artist, professor and photo editor for the past twenty years, he has been able to combine freelancing, teaching and pursuing long term personal projects. Equally at ease within the boundaries of traditional photography or multidisciplinary work (bridging digital imaging and sculpture, science and art), visual communication and design are his primary interests. Over the past few years, he has explored combining photography with the limitless possibilities of the digital medium, developing new bodies of digital mixed media and sculptural work and regularly shows his work.
He has taught photography at Pratt Institute and La Guardia CUNY for over ten years, before joining La Guardia full time in 2014.
