Sylvain Leurent began his career as a photographer while working in several development NGOs in France and Asia. His photo report, made with the NGO « Pour Un sourire d’Enfant » (For a child’s smile) in Cambodia, was exhibited at the cultural center « Franchomme » in Hem (59) in 2005.
After a last year-long mission in Vietnam in 2006, he turned to photography and went back to school at ENS Louis Lumière where he graduated in 2010.
He went to Eritrea in 2009 to report on Orthodox monks in mountainous areas. Part of this work was published in Eritrea Art Time.
He demonstrated his concerns for the challenges of our society in his series « Trait d’Union », on our relationship with connectivity wich was nominated « coup de cœur » in the 2014 Eurazeo contest. He thus integrates the photographic collections of this company, recognized patron in photography.
He is now represented by the agency « La Belle Façon », which supports him in his various projects.
