Growing up in Paris, photographer Eglantine Lavogez developed an interest for urban and street photography. Attracted by the graphic aspect of the objects that surround her and by the places that she enters in to contact with, Eglantine extrapolates the lines and forms she sees in front of her and transforms chaos into harmony. Her style, definitely minimal, shows the world in its simplest form.
“Minimalist and graphic, the city and its details. This is how I could sum up this series. I take pictures for the aesthetic and graphic pleasure, not to document. I use my camera as a tool to give order to daily uproar, peace to the frenzy and a way in which to give the city that is gray some colour. Playing with colours and materials, I try to put the focus on detail, cut the essential from the excess, and give relief to heaviness. After all, who says we cannot find fun in the boredom of routine? I almost only work in diptychs for my street pictures, as the pictures seem to respond to each other.”
