Le Réseau / The Network
This personal project is a series of black & white portraits of the friends, colleagues and acquaintances in my network in Paris. With these portraits, I aim to capture the essence of the person, helping them to explore and express themselves in a photograph.
Usually done in confined spaces with just a couple of speed lights and portable modifiers, this series has given me the opportunity to get to know my network better while at the same time exploring lighting styles and techniques that I might not otherwise try while shooting for commercial clients.
It has been a huge pleasure to honour the network that has helped me feel at home in Paris by sharing in the creative process and producing photographs in thanks for their ongoing friendship and support.
With 250+ more people in a fast growing network to photograph, this will certainly be an ongoing project with possible exhibition and a book.
