Arnaud Andrieu (b. Paris, 1980) is a French-Dutch photojournalist who covers news, social issues and conflicts. He studied architecture at la Cambre in Brussels, Belgium. After three years of working at offices, and while teaching himself photography, he decided to change direction as he devoted himself to documentary photography. In 2012, Arnaud started working as a local press photographer in Reunion Island, Indian Ocean. In 2016, he moved to Istanbul, to concentrate on international reporting and to capture the rapid changes in Turkey since the failed coup.
His pictures have been published in several publications, above all Le Figaro Magazine, L’Express, Der Spiegel, Paris-Match, Le Figaro, L'Obs, Libération and The Guardian.
He has undergone HEFAT (Hostile Environment and First Aid Trainings) with the CNEC (Centre National d'Entraînement Commando) and RISC (Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues) and participated in a Nikon Masterclass in Conflict Photography with Patrick Chauvel during the Bayeux-Calvados Awards of War Correspondents.
