Frédéric Noy is a French photographer whose documentary approach favours the chronicle as a narrative mode. His work, mainly focused on Africa, describes a continent under construction, whose history, beliefs and traditions are tirelessly rubbing shoulders with an irrepressible mutation. Successively based in Tanzania, Nigeria, Sudan, Chad and Uganda, his photographic stories linger on the trough of the news, on unexpected stories or on the existence of populations socially excluded, stigmatised or caught up in the gears of conflicts. A proponent of Slow Journalism and intrigued by the issue of taboo, he spent several years on a work about sexual minorities in the Great Lakes region which was published by "Les Belles Lettres" in 2020, as a book entitled: "Ekifire". His latest project, centred around Lake Victoria and rewarded with the Visa D'Or Magazine 2019, focuses on the dilemma between survival and environmental preservation that is plaguing the populations living around Lake Victoria, in East Africa. One of the images from this story was awarded 3rd place in the Environment category of the World Press Photo 2020 Contest. His reports are regularly exhibited during Visa Pour l'Image, and appear frequently in French and international publications. He is currently based in Central Asia and is represented by Panos agency.
