Jean-Louis Schoellkopf (born in Colmar, France, 1946) gave up his work as a reporter in the 1970' to concentrate on the notion of portrait enlarged to the scale of the city.

The photographic series that he develops are based on the shared and unique configurations created by human relationships, particularly within families.

He covers social situations that reflect life styles as well as cultural and aesthetic models.
On his own initiative or through commissions, he has worked on the cities of Saint-Etienne, Genova,
Rotterdam, Stuttgart, Lille-Roubaix-Tourcoing, barcelona, Paris ans is continuing his series on the
great ports of Europe.
