Johann Soussi was born in 1978 in Paris where he lives and works.

Trained as a mathematics teacher, he taught in the French National Education system for ten years before devoting himself entirely to photography in 2012. Self-taught photographer, Johann Soussi signed several photographic series that have received good press. He reveals himself to the general public in 2010 with his first series Aller-retour on the Parisian metro shown outdoors, in sound and light in Paris as part of the Nuit Blanche Festival and now preserved at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. His second work Garde à vous on the cavalry regiment of the Garde Républicaine is exhibited from 2012 in various festivals, exhibitions and galleries and is the subject of several installations. In 2014, Johann Soussi followed the shooting of the film Les fusillés directed by Philippe Triboit, and his new images became part of a work of memory that will be the subject of several exhibitions shown in partnership with the Mission for the Centenary as part of the commemorations of the Great War. In 2015, Johann Soussi changes the setting and invites himself this time on stage, in Parisian concert halls such as the Olympia and the Bataclan. His new series De concert will be the subject the following year of a traveling exhibition in several Zeniths in France. Johann Soussi's work has recently been associated with some of the greatest names in photography in a book published in 2017 by Actes Sud (Paris-Métro-Photo) and in which the RATP gathers the shots of prestigious signatures (Doisneau, Brassaï, Cartier-Bresson, Capa, Depardon...). In 2019, Johann Soussi will once again bring art to the street with Les fusillés by creating a surprise in a Parisian public space and offering, as part of the Nuit Blanche Festival, an original artistic encounter, free of charge and accessible to all through an exhibition shown outside of traditional venues, on nearly 2,600 square meters, Place Denfert-Rochereau, in the open air, with sound and light.
