🟨 About Marvin Bonheur/
Marvin Bonheur was born in August 1991 and grew up in the suburbs of Paris, in the 93 department. After completing his studies in art design in 2010, he worked as a graphic designer for a fashion event company.

In 2011, photography began to hold a special place in his life. The daily work of graphic design in front of a computer was not fulfilling for him, and he desired to immerse himself in real life. Thus, he started creating random and purposeless daily photography.

In 2013, he moved to the center of Paris and had the idea of using film cameras for his creative work. Film cameras were easy to carry, allowing him to create wherever and whenever. The vintage film cameras reminded him of his childhood memories captured by his mother on film.

In 2014, he embarked on his first photography project, "Alzheimer's Disease." At that time, he felt trapped by a lack of creative inspiration and a sense of self-disorientation. As a result, he returned to the 93 department where he grew up and immersed himself in his childhood for a three-year photography project.

In the summer of 2017, his work was featured in an article by i-D, and he held his first exhibition. He began to believe in his potential. At the end of 2018, he created a trilogy series called "The Happiness Trilogy La trilogie du Bonheur." In this series composed of three parts, he presented the memories, daily life, and dreams of the working class in the 93 department.

His hard work has earned him several articles and media coverage, including Obs, The Guardian, and Le Parisien. Many clothing brands such as Footlocker, Adidas, and Redstar have also offered him photography contracts.
