About Gwano

Discovering, witnessing,


(in french, english .. someday)

I am Gwano.
I am Gwenn (a.k.a. Gwano), from Brittany, Celtic region in western France.
Student in earth science, I started photography with film while hitchhiking across Europe. When i got back i've continued : photographying my environment, my student life, concerts, hikes ... 

On holidays or weekends, I've brought my gear during lots of protests (pacifists or riots), also while I helped in a refugee camp in North of France as volunteer.
As my studies continued, I was eager to reach the present, from very old geology stuff, to prehistorical paleoclimatology and finally to end up in a master of climatology/glaciology in Grenoble. 

As I grew up, my wish to meet and learn from the people that lives on earth rose far more intense than only studying the earth beneath them. 
That's why my photography is quite wide because I'm concerned about people, how they live, how they struggle to live and how they protest to live, that's lots of aspects.

My wish is to testify the struggle of humans in their cultural or natural environnement, as refugees, citizens, activists, scientists, as humans basically.
Having a Working Holiday visa for 2 years in Canada since oct 2018, i've based myself in Saguenay, in northern Québec mid-october, with an hunger for subjects to cover !
