Originally from Reunion Island where he grew up, Jerome Gence discovered the Himalayas at school thanks to traveling lecturers. The Himalayas then becomes his childhood dream. A dream he achieves in 2015 when he arrives in Nepal after more than a year of traveling from Paris. It was along this trip that he took his first photos.
In 2016, Jérôme exhibited “The Himalayas” at the Atelier Yann Arthus Bertrand in Paris with the support of Canon France.
Since then, he has been interested in social issues such as migration flows or the impact of the Internet in the lives of the people he photographs.
Besides his stories, Jérôme works remotely as web analyst. He has been represented by the Cosmos Photo Agency since 2017.
His mentor is the photographer Eric Valli.
