"My work investigates the aesthetic and psychological possibilities of the urban environment. Each image asks us to consider the interconnection of their historical, physical, and cerebral attributes."

Renowned international artist Stephane Couturier investigates the urban landscapes, construction sites, and factories of Berlin, Beijing, Moscow, Soeul and his native Paris. A photographer with a painterly eye, Stephane extracts from each landscape its most beautiful idiosyncrasies through wide horizon lines and symmetrical planes. Using a small lens aperture, he brings together the fore-, middle, and backgrounds creating densely geometrical and solidified compositions.

His photographic compositions have been featured at many international venues, including the Moscow Biennial, the ICP Triennial, Centre Georges Pompidou, the Museum of Modern Art, Luxembourg, and the Museum of Photography, Charleroi, Belgium.

His work is in numerous major collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, Cleveland Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Yale Art Gallery, Nelson-Atkins Museum, the National Gallery of Art, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, as well as the LaSalle National Bank corporate collection. In 2004, the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, France featured a major retrospective of his career to date.
