“I’m not a factory of images, I prefer to bring back only one photo. My images speak of a disappearing world. “

Stéphane Gautronneau is a self-taught photographer, filmmaker, and an adventurer. He began his career assisting some of the most famous fashion photographers, and now regularly contributes to magazines and daily newspapers such as Vogue, Glamour US, Paris Match, Air France Magazine & Madame, The World, Liberation, The New York Times, Vanity Fair US, Harpers Bazaar UK, Stern, The Guardian, and The Independent.

As an Ambassador for the BMW Motorrad brand, he opened many routes like Perth-Sydney; Paris-Goa; Istanbul-Kathmandu; Buenos Aires-Atacama, Paris-Vladivostok-Lisbon.

If he travels in sometimes extreme conditions – under a tent, on a motorcycle, on a glacier – it is to capture intact landscapes. He gives time another dimension, that of being an important component of each shot.


The Original Motodrom is the oldest traveling Wall Of Death in the world. Built in 1928, it will soon be a 100 year old circus. The four “Motorellos” Capt Donald Ganslmeier, El Clemente, Peter Petersen, and The Flying Dutchman are keeping the soul of these machines alive by riding The Wall Of Death to entertain hundreds of thousands of people. For them, the same passion still burns.

Shot over five years – June 2015 to August 2020 – ‘The Wall’ gives viewers a rare, in depth look into a disappearing profession and way of life. Beautiful and at times heartbreaking, we see through the expert eye of filmmaker Stéphane Gautronneau how the passion of these riders alone is what keeps the Wall Of Death alive today.

Updates on the release of this much anticipated feature length documentary at film festivals around the world will be announced later this year. Stay Tuned!
