Cedric Arnold

French-British photographer and filmmaker Cedric Arnold began his journey into image making while studying linguistics at the University of Paris, spending more time in the dark room than in lecture halls. He moved to London in 1999 and joined the Sygma agency as a correspondent in both London and Belfast.

In 2001, he moved to Bangkok, and began working in the South East Asian region, for publications such as Le Monde, Time Magazine, New York Times and The Sunday Times, Monocle, Travel & Leisure; splitting his time between assignments, and more in-depth personal projects.
His long term project “Yantra”, an exploration of Thailand’s traditional talismanic tattoo tradition through photography, sound design and film, has been the subject of 20 exhibitions world-wide including shows at Royal Ontario Museum, (Toronto, Canada), MAS | Museum aan de Stroom, (Antwerp, Belgium), Asia Culture Center, (Gwangju, South Korea) Arles Photo Festival (Arles, France), Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts (Kaohsiung, Taiwan)

Cedric’s work is part of private and institutional collections such as the SOAS and British Library Collections and his films are regularly screened in festivals and video installation exhibitions.
