Photographer and Designer
Pierre-Christophe Gam is a photographer and designer based in London. Born and raised in Chantilly, Gam’s influences derive from his multi-cultural upbringing through his Cameroonian, Tchadian, and Egyptian heritage. Gam trained as an architect at the Ecole Nationale des Superieures des Arts Decoratifs in Paris and Central St. Martins in London. In his professional career, he has specialised in art direction for leading contemporary luxury brands, including Kenzo, Martin Margiela, Shiseido, Cartier, Les Galleries Lafayettes, and Izmaylova. His artistic work explores coded complex narratives that are rooted in concerns linked with the global African experience. He founded the Afro-Polis cultural platform in 2013 with the aim to communicate and reflect on the global African experience via exhibitions, events and talks in Paris and London. Since then he has developed his artistic work mainly through photography and digital media. His work is featured in “Making Africa” at the Vitra Museum.
