Ever since he was young, he has been fascinated by far away countries and travelling, and spent some time in Africa, unknowingly retracing Monfried and Joseph Kessel's footsteps when he was 10 years old in Djibouti, Ethiopia and Yemen.
He started taking photographs in 2006. Quickly, magazines and newspapers from all over the world like Geo, Nat Geo, Lonely Planet Magazine, etc began using his work for illustrations on North Korea, Papua New Guinea, the tribes of Ethiopia, etc.
In 2008, his work on the people of Papua is displayed at the prestigious VISA photojournalism festival in Perpignan.
Eric Lafforgue spends most of his time travelling the globe to share his encounters, through the perception of an ethnologist and the heart of an artist, privileging the regions or populations in danger and less usually visited countries.

There's not a person on this planet with no curiosity on the world and on other people, and what you do here it's provide us with an instant trip everywhere, to remote areas, to lost tribes, to far away lands that seem almost made up by my imagination, your imagination. This is the second year that I follow you everywhere through these places, these colorful corners of the world, going from marvelous sunsets to sincere shy portraits. All so striking that I can hear people singing, feel the wind around me and enjoy the sun from lost memories from childhood.
    A huge thank you."

He even manages to scape classification once it comes to art or documenting reality, precisely because he is willing show us with his work that there is a fine and elegant line in which both approaches merge, delivering clear and so much as touching messages about human existence as a whole. My work as a visual anthropologist owes him a great deal."

    "Eric is one of those rare persons with and exceptional talent for the work he does. He not only successfully joins very remote travel to top end photographic equipment but having done that has the eye to use the light and frame his subjects in the best possible way, and the ability to press the button at exactly the right time. The result is an outstanding catalogue of high quality images of cultures and peoples that with time may well disappear in the uniform global cultural soup that has already engulfed so much of the world. His work is both inspiring and pleasantly sobering at the same time, as it immediately puts one’s own work in the correct perspective."

    "C'est le portfolio d'Eric sur la Corée du Nord qui a le premier attiré mon attention et c'est ce portfolio qui définit le mieux son travail à mon sens. La surprise du témoin, mêlée à un grand sens de l'humour de l'artiste produisent des images rafraîchissante et pleines de vie.

    Toutes mes félicitations pour ta dernière publication sur Boston Globe Big Picture: www.boston.com/bi...


    It's Eric's set on North Korea that drew my attention on his work, incidently, in my opinion, it is that very set who best defines Eric's work. The surprise in the eye of the witness, mixed with the sense of humor of the artist combine and help create truly refreshing and lively images.

    Congrats on your latest publication on the Boston Globe Big Picture: www.boston.com/bi..."

    "Eric's photostream is one of the finest and most fascinating on flickr - an intimate view of the world, its cultures, its colors, its people. His journey to Mount Hagen is an inspiration to me - the angles and textures of his photos so stunning and original."

    "Eric Lafforgue's photostream is one of my favorites on flickr, a very talented reporter...
    First, extraordinary photos and inspiring scenes, he portraits people in such an authentic and beautiful manner.
    Secondly, he transforms deep emotions in unforgettable images.
    Eric teaches me that internal silence can lead me to absolute happiness.
    Thank you for that!

    "I can't explain in english, what i feel watching the Eric's picture..
    He told me some months ago, that he does not "catalogue" itself like a PRO photographer. Well, i think that he is a wonderful photographer.
    The Papua shot are INCREDIBLE. Love this Work!!

    "I must admit, Eric's images leave me a bit breathless. I love to browse them and get lost, get caught up, in the worlds he captures. It's hard for me not to "fave" everyone one of them! Thank you, Eric, for taking me away from the glow of a computer screen, nestled within a cube like a hundred others around me, and transporting me to some of the most wonderful and exotic places on earth!"
