Cedric Arnold is a photographer of immense and emotional focus.
The French/British photographer, who studied photography and film making in Paris, can be remembered first for his 1999 solo exhibition “Ireland/North Ireland” that stemmed from the making of a documentary about Ireland and its language.
Arnold began his career freelancing from London, until he joined the Sygma agency. Through this agency, and trips to both Cambodia and Thailand, he realized Southeast Asia is where he wanted to be based. In 2001, he made Bangkok his home.
Cedric Arnold has worked for such publications and companies as Cartier, The National Geographic Channel, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and the Financial Times.
Sacred Ink is a personal project in development for four years, and highlights the spiritual connection to tattoos that stems from the Yantra (Yantra is the Sanskrit word meaning instrument or machine, which can also mean symbols, such as tattoos) tradition of tattooing.
