From starting off as a photo-journalist to becoming a collector of art, French cartoonist Stephane Peray has lived life to the fullest. Words by Voicu Mihnea Simandan, photos by Nick McGrath.

“I’ve been drawing cartoons since I was a young kid,” says Bangkok-based French cartoonist Stephane Peray. “I was a photo reporter in Asia and one day in 1993 some journalist friends of mine launched a new monthly magazine in Phnom Penh and I asked if I could draw political cartoons for them.”
