Luc Dratwa was born in 1958 and currently lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Self-taught, he worked as editor-in-chief for the design and architecture magazine "Domino"; from a very early age he displayed a passion for the arts. At first he was attracted to painting, but subsequently turned to photography, which quickly proved to be his preferred artistic medium. Painting taught him the importance of colours and the graphical quality of composition. For him, a photograph reveals the photographer. As a result, Luc Dratwa waited for many years before taking the plunge, when he finally felt he was close to achieving the necessary rigour and perfection which he had sought for so long. His career as a photographer was then launched. All the subjects he explores are primarily a narrative transcribed on to photographic paper. Since 2009, the city, and New York in particular, has been his favourite theme. Its multi-facetted qualities offer endless possibilities for him to give free rein to his creative imagination. His vision of the photographer is not limited to the click of a shutter; Luc Dratwa attaches great importance to the need to think about his works in their totality. Every detail is carefully considered and planned by the photographer, from the photo shoot to the print, from the frame to the paper. A palpable perfectionism in each of his creations, where nothing is left to chance. From Paris to Bangkok, via New York, Amsterdam and even Singapore, Luc Dratwa is now represented all around the world. He has also taken part in prestigious contemporary art fairs, including Art Paris, Art Lille and Art India, where he enjoyed great success.
