Photographer Cedric Viollet grew up skateboarding, painting, studying art history, and traveling, all the while discovering his passion for and style of photography. Between his fashion and editorial work, he's been commissioned by Kenzo, Nike, Sonia Rykiel, Jalouse, GQ, Pigalle, Romain Gavras, M.I.A., and others, who admire the raw, intimate quality of his images. We asked Cedric to share 12 of his favorite photographs with us and tell the stories behind them in this week's Portfolio Review installment.
