Cyril Isy-Schwart




Travelling is a tradition in the Isy-Schwart’s family. Cyril inherited of his father’s travelling virus Marcel Isy-Schwart, a member of the French Explorers Society. It must be noted that he often accompanied his father on his expeditions. He gained, within the years, a willing to learn and the manipulation of images has no secrets from them. Dicing is also one of their common points. At the age of 8, Cyril Isy-Schwart has received his first camera: an Instamatic Kodak.


He became a photographer and integrated the American agency The Image Bank. The prestigious Leica Foundation then exposed his artworks through an itinerant collection in Europe.


One serie is exhibited:
