Frederic Lagrange: Travel

Photograph © Frederic Lagrange-All Rights Reserved

Frederic LaGrange is based in Brooklyn, and specializes in portraiture, travel, and fashion photography. He started in fashion, but found his true calling in travel photography. He balances his commercial assignments for international magazines, such as Travel and Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, Destinations, and Vogue, with personal projects, such as a reportage on the people and land of Mongolia.

This is the meticulous work of a commercial photographer, and from his many galleries one can immediately sense that these carefully composed images are destined for the pages of glossy travel magazines.

I suggest you visit all of his Voyage galleries, then his Portraits where his Mongolia images are. Lagrange says that he became obsessed with Mongolia, especially because of Genghis Khan, because of its historical dominance of the known world from Europe to Japan and Siberia to Indonesia; its beautiful landscape; and the amazing faces and features of its people.
