BM PHOTOS is run by Stéphanie Borcard and Nicolas Métraux, a Swiss duo of photographers. After being based in Bangkok, Thailand, for 3 years, they live and work in Switzerland since 2015. They regularly collaborate with the press, as well as with various institutions such as the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). Their personal projects explore social issues, both universal and specific. But it is the notion of identity, the relationship that binds the individual to society, which is found throughout their work whether captured in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Philippines, China or Switzerland. They are constantly questioning themselves, fueled by the insatiable desire for a better understanding of the world. 

Stephanie Borcard and Nicolas Métraux have been exhibited in Europe and Asia and have won the 1st Prize of the Swiss Press Photo 2015 with their series Fading Memories. INSTITUTE artists agency (Los Angeles, USA, Bath, UK) represents a selection of their work and Hollandse Hoogte distributes their archive. In November 2015, GOST Books, London published their first monograph Grey Skies Black Birds with texts by Saša Stanišić, Srećko Latal and Christian Caujolle. Since 2016, Grey Skies Black Birds is part of the permanent collection of the Fotostiftung in Winterthur, CH.

Their clients include: l’Illustré, Le Temps, Der Spiegel, The Washington Post, XL Semanal, Wordt Vervolgd – Amnesty International, Die Zeit, NZZ am Sonntag, NZZ, Report on Business, New Weekly Magazine, Sept Magazine, South China Morning Post Magazine, Swissinfo, The Swiss Embassy in BiH, The United Nations, Celestica, Adolf Merkle Institute, The Swiss National Science Foundation, the City of Thun…
