Fabrice Monteiro
Visual Arts Residency

Raised in Benin to a Beninese father and a Belgian mother, Dakar-based photographer Fabrice Monteiro had a childhood shaped by multiple cultures. After an introduction to fashion and photography during a stint working as a professional model, Monteiro has taken on photographic portraiture as an artistic practice. Drawn to the intimacy and sensitivity it reveals, Monteiro creates work that bridges the gap between photojournalism and fashion photography, often referencing his African homeland.
