"It was during his time at Grange House the original Guernsey College of Further Education, home for Art and Design (2006 - 2008), that Etienne started to develop his interest in photography.
From the outset Etienne was keen to strip the whole concept of portraiture down to its chassis. Gone are the soft-lit studio shots with dappled backdrop. Instead Etienne is looking to place his subject in familiar territory with the pub, the stairwell or living room bringing another layer of complexity to the final image.
This interest in social documentary photography has fuelled Etienne’s passion for the subject and has allowed Etienne to secure a wide range of freelance work."
