Living in Paris having studied fashion design in the fabrics department. Fanny’s obsessions in photography are textures and colours, which comes from her work experiences in fabrics and prints. Fascinated by nature, particularly by stones and rocks textures, Fanny captures a cosmic and magical approach of nature…really excited what she has in store for us.
Living in Strasbourg and a MFA student at the ESADS Art School of Strasbourg. Clara works with a variety of mediums, with a continuous interest for photography and a growing interest for self publishing. Clara is interested in the ways we deal with our existence, in the ways we fool and constrain ourselves in certain systems to avoid the reality of our own anguish. In the words of Clara; ‘I don’t wonder why we exist, but rather how we accept the fact that we do…So really the perfect kind of guest blogger!
With one foot in photography and the other in graphic design this gives Laetitia a fresh and casual way of walking. Her practice of photography is a real exploration of her daily decor forming a kind of raw material attracting her to new desires and project ideas. Laetitia enjoys self publishing small books, contributing to experimental publications and also responds to unexpected collaboration calls…alllright, Laetitia approach to photography is crazy and I can’t wait to see what she’s got lined up us all.
Multi talented artist Sebastien Chou is going to introduce you to some of his amazing videos. His posts may be in French so get your dictionaries out and prepared to enter the world of Chou. I’m really excited about these posts, partly because I am not sure what we will be treated to…videos, photos whatever it is I’m sure it will be all good…take it away Sebastien.
First it was dad, then it was working in a photo studio, today it’s out of fun and curiosity. When feeling the urge to press the shutter David barely look at the viewfinder, resulting in snaps he often doesn’t remember taking. He wants his kids to see what he has been up to the day they stumble upon an old box of prints. Vintage.
