Dana and Stéphane Maitec are photographers who have been based in Paris for the past 15 years. A couple in real life as well as behind the camera, these two inseparable artists live life passionately, shuttling between Paris, New York, and all the others wonderful places in this world.
Stéphane’s craft as a set designer, acquired at the Fine Arts Academy, beautifully complements the deeply intimate images of self-taught photographer Dana. Above all, they see themselves as portraitists with a real passion for capturing the look and attitude of the everyman as well as famous faces from the worlds of cinema, sports, music and politics.
With a penchant for surrealist compositions, the Maitecs throw a new light on their subjects through a poetic prism and cinematic approach, by using the same lighting employed in cinema. As independent photographers, they generate their own projects as well as work on private and company commissions. Their work can be found worldwide in collections in Germany, Australia, Belgium, China, USA, France, UK, Hong Kong, Italy, Monaco, New Zealand, Switzerland, Romania and Russia.
