Frédéric Hérion

Frédéric's first involvement with film photography came in the mid 1980s in his homeland of Belgium when he first considered making a career of it. While it didn't work out at that point, he came back to film five years ago amidst political and social disruptions, desirous to once again "make' pictures to document these events. At that point, Frederic joined the Krasnyi collective, and since then has shot film almost exclusively. ​ Fred has a unique perspective on the world around him. He has Autism Spectrum Disorder (formerly known as Asperger's). It turns out that autism and photography can produce remarkably good images. The perception of an autistic person is particularly acute and discriminating. It gives them the ability to look at the world just as it is (shape, light, movement, sound, density, texture) and often makes them more sensitive to the hidden harmony of things around them.
