Born 1968 in Châtellerault.

Lives and works in Paris.

Since the nineties, and following studies at ENSP and at Villa Arson in Nice, Serralongue has put together a photographic oeuvre that tears down traditional image-production procedures in today’s media. Whether he confronts, in the way it was broadcast, the reality of an event (South Sudan, 2011), whether he returns to once media-saturated locales which are no longer in the public eye (Calais, 2006-2008), or whether he follows a current event by offering a form of coverage wholly different from the mainstream media (New Fabris, 2009), Serralongue rediscovers the process of a form of conceptual photography that reveals the complexities of reality rather than exhausting its forms.

His images are regularly exhibited in France as well as abroad. His work has been shown in a series of retrospective exhibitions at Wiels (Brussels) in 2009, at the Jeu de Paume (Paris) as well as at Virreina Centre for the Image (Barcelona) in 2010. He is represented by the Air de Paris gallery in Paris, Baronian-Francey in Brussels and Francesca Pia in Zurich.

Bruno Serralongue presented his work at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2012: Bruno Serralongue at the Atelier des Forges; in 2006 with Philippe Durand: Contrepoint 2 at the Galerie Arena, and in 2005 taking part in the collective exhibition, for the 20 years of the ENSP french school: One time or another at the Abbaye de Montmajour.
