Stéphane Gizard is French photographer, living and working in Paris.

Best known for portraits of young people created for his “Modern Lovers” series, photographer Stéphane Gizard’s gentle, kindly eye manages to capture the beauty and fragility of his subjects, which have included many celebrities and strangers. His work reveals their sensuality and brings out the expression of a truth; an intimate questioning. In parallel to working closely with the press and the advertising industry, Stéphane has spent ten years photographing across-section of 17-20 year olds; from his perspective the defining and decisive phase of one's life sitting at the end of adolescence and at the beginning of adulthood. A period of self-reflection and fragility.

In 2013, his first publication “Modern Lovers” received notable success. Following a period of flourishing sales at premier bookstores such as Strand in NYC, the monograph was reedited in 2015 by Bizarre Publishing NY. In 2014, Stéphane worked as the Artistic Director on the feature film “Bizarre”, written and directed by Etienne Faure and selected for the Berlin film festival the following year. This was succeeded by an exhibition at La Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris in 2015. A new study on identity “LIKE ME”.

In 2017, he released New Faces, a book on the violence of the passing time and the ephemeral beauty of these young models. 

In 2018, he participated in the book Boys Boys Boys published by The Little Black Gallery in London and whose income is donated to the Aids Elton John foundation. He takes part in numerous exhibitions around the world.

In 2020, his third opus was released: "We Removed your post .." A warning message regarding the rise in extremes and the formatting that groups like Instagram are trying to impose. An ode to the paper book and freedom of expression.

This year he also participates in the new book Boys Boys Boys published by TeNeues and published in 5000 copies and distributed in 25 countries. The book will be launched in NY in June with n collective exhibition at the Fotografiska  Museum in Manhattan
