Hello everybody, today I’m with Christine. Can you introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi! Sure, I’m a 24 years old photographer from France, student in linguistics, currently living in Norway.
Did you study in any art school?
No, I though to at some point, but in the end, I prefer it like that: I love to discover things by myself, and as soon as a subject I love becomes compulsory, i tend to loose my enthousiasm.
When and how did you get passionate with photography?
I was into drawing in the beginning, then a friend lended me his DSLR some years ago and that was it. Though I got really serious about it a bit more that a year ago.
What are your main visual influences? Do you have any favourite photographers?
Originaly mainly paintings, from the XVIIIth century to abstract contemporary art (Zao-Wu Ki would be a good exemple), and folktales art from all over Europe. I would say it’s more about a “feeling” than about a strictly visual influence. Regarding Photography, I usualy have more crushs on unique pieces than on entire body of works, but I could evoque the landscape photography of Mickael Kenna, the wonderfully poetic works by Gregory Colbert, or Brooke Shaden’s conceptual art.
What can you tell us about this work? How did it come up?
I was waiting to pick up a friend at the train station, wandering around, when I found this beautiful light on the platform. I waited there for some time, and then people started to rush to catch there train. In the middle of all this bustle were these two lovers. I waited again until there were the only two left on the platform, saying their last goodbye.
What are you working on these days?
Several projects waiting on the paper, some being quite complex to implement, so they keep…waiting! Thankfully many other conceptual/ poetic photography idees keep me busy.
What about your plans for the future?
First to finish my M.A and then, well… I’ll see! Many things can happen in a year. But my main plan is to go wander, live, an keep photographing in Asia for some time.
Thank you! Is there anything else would you like to say to our readers?
