Guillaume R – Paris

9 Feb
Since my youth, I have ever been curious about the tags and the graffiti. Why, When, Who does it ?
Step by step I started to take street pictures like in a playground. I live in the suburbs of Paris  and as soon as possible I go and explore Paris and it’s suburban fringes, It’s an endlessly exciting game.
At first, I started watching graffiti but it opened my eyes to others interesting drawings. I’m in love with the dirty and broken city atmosphere .
   I look at  the « beautiful » in the places where you don’t want to live and I try to make sense. I was inspired by a lot of internet session , by people with whom I took pictures and photographers as Bruce Davidson or Marta Cooper.
I created a magazine “Vu dans la rue” (“View in the street”) you can see some online :

Pixdar Photographies – On the footsteps of the past

 Pixdar on the footsteps of the past

“We spend all day in front, often without even lend a look … And yet, if it lingers a few moments, we take the time to look a little closer, these small quaint shops take us back, as the song of Charles Aznavour in “a time that those under 20 years can not know.”

Totally abandoned, awaiting demolition or transformed into housing, these old shops, signs and storefronts are in France as elsewhere, precious witnesses of an era. Faced with these shopping centers without any charm, which are mushrooming, it seems unimaginable to let them disappear without immortalize them. “

Julien Hairault – Valence

22 Oct

I’m a French photographer based in Valence, a small and quiet city in the south-east of France. My work deals with the tracks and signs we leave along our streets and roads to communicate, inform, entertain and direct ourselves. Everywhere I go in my country, I carry around my medium-format camera and Kodak Portra films, avoiding to take pictures of people and touristic places.

Paris – Eastern Suburbs

4 Nov

Paris’s eastern suburbs

The eastern suburbs of Paris remained a forgotten territory until 1998 and the FIFA World Cup. Since then, new buildings arise every day, from Company Headquarters to Ministerial offices.

But a trace from the past is still remain.

City Focus: Paris by Tone Bringsdal

City Focus – Paris

You read the name of the city and have already visualized the Eiffel Tower. However, Paris possesses a different kind of urban beauty; even in its infamous (and not so visually attractive) architectural accomplishments, reaching for the skies way below the tip of the legendary tower.

But a city will reveal itself only when you let yourself get lost in it.
