Born in Benin to a Beninese father and a Belgian mother, Monteiro’s childhood is nurtured with multiple cultures. He is trained as an Industrial engineer but starts working as a professional model. His work environment allows him to develop skills, knowledge and a savoir-faire for photography. While traveling around the world as a model, he meets New York photographer Alfonse Pagano in 2007. Pagano quickly becomes his friend and mentor and teaches him the art. With his newly established creative force, he strives to create a visual world that resembles his image: a métis. Hovering between photojournalism and fashion photography, he developed a taste for portraits, and the intimacy and sensitivity it reveals, particularly in his homeland, Africa.
Fabrice lives and work in Senegal.
