Christian Coigny

Based near Lausanne on the shores of Leman Lake, Christian Coigny has for the past 30 years developed a career in traditional black and white photography. He works primarily with film, anchored in a classical education and strongly influenced by American painters such as Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keefe and Andrew Wyeth, who he discovered during his 5-year stay in San Francisco.

Christian Coigny has had a long and successful career in fashion, advertising, and editorial photography. Clients have included the department store Bon Genie Grieder, Hermès, Krug Champagnes, Ferretti yachts, Hublot watches, and Chopard jewelers of Geneva.

He now devotes most of his time to his personal work as well as exhibiting at various galleries and museums in Europe.
