VNB Fine Art Film Photography Workshops Co-Creator
Assistant Professor of Photography, Governors State University, Chicago, IL
MFA, Photography

Bastien Desfriches Doria is a native of Paris, France, where he used to live and work before moving to the United States in 2002 to study Photography. He obtained his MFA in Photography in 2006 from the Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and taught full-time for the past five years as an Assistant Professor at Governors State University in Chicago. Mainly focusing on conceptual portraiture, his large-format work evokes philosophical wonder and reflects on mundane absurdity. Bastien and his wife Virginie Lamarche, also a French photographer and teacher, recently launched the VNB Fine Art Photo workshops in Vancouver, which focuses exclusively on fostering film photography culture and artistic practices in BC.
