Christophe Rey (born 1967, lives and works in Geneva) is an artist who is particularly interested in photography and its history as well as in the cinema, architecture and literature. His long journeys—preferably across Canada or the United States—have enabled him to build up an extensive photographic archive which provides him with a major source of inspiration for his writing. His texts, often concise, express deep introspection. Yet, without restricting himself to a purely autobiographical approach, the artist's keen eye goes far beyond mere “impressions of a journey” and is infused with a social, moral or political awareness drawn mostly from the very heart of cities.
