Alain Briot is one of today's leading contemporary landscape photographers. Originally from Paris, France, he studied drawing and painting at the Academie Nationale des Beaux Arts and photography at the American Center in Paris.
After visiting the American Southwest, Briot became enthralled with the artistic potential this landscape afforded. In 1986 he relocated to the United States and studied photography at Northern Arizona University. From 1995 to 2002, he lived at Canyon de Chelly, Arizona, in the heart of the Navajo Nation. Living there allowed him to become intimately familiar with Native American arts and culture.
Alain Briot is a columnist on the highly respected Luminous Landscape website, and is a popular teacher of photography workshops. He currently lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife Natalie. Learn more about Alain at www.beautiful-landscape.com
