Entry Description: Brainwave is a charity organisation supporting children with neurological conditions. A couple of months ago, they approached me to work on a campaign to celebrate their 20th birthday. I had great time meeting the children and families as we shared a wonderful experience shooting their portraits.

About the Artist:

Born in Paris, France, Sébastien came to photography via a circuitous route. Torn between his love of literature and his curiosity about the physical world, he initially studied maths and physics, while doing odd jobs to make end meets. Sébastien saw the world through a lens for the first time during a post-university road trip across the United States and returned to Paris determined to make photography his career. He started out by assisting several world-class still life and portrait photographers before setting up on his own in the late 1990s. Since then, he has undertaken a range of personal projects focusing in particular on people and their day to day lives. Whether he's shooting miners in the outback or the CEO of a multinational company, Sébastien always leverages his intuition and experience to get the best result. He has been commissioned by some of the world's leading ad agencies and received accolades in photographic competitions around the globe. After living for three years in Sydney, Australia, Sébastien returned to France in 2014 with his Australian wife and their two sons.
