Vincent Morisset

Vincent Morisset (1976) is an explorer whose work revolves around existing or imagined borders, acknowledging them for the pleasure of blurring them. Taking off from familiar grounds, he then takes a step back and hands us the steering wheel to shape the paths he opened. Embarking with Vincent is a truly transformative trip, in which routine online and offline interactions and everyday mediums become the keys to compelling and unique stories. vincentmorisset.com
