“Photography is an art; it is better than an art, it is the solar phenomenon where the artist collaborates with the sun. “
Alphonse de Lamartine
This maxim has never been this true when it comes to the young photographer I’m going to introduce today.
For once it won’t be about fashion (well … a little bit anyway) but about photography.
June is one of those people who made me say “I have to work with him” before I even meet him. Passionate about photography and self-taught, he does not set limits when it comes to practicing his art. A raw talent, constantly seeking improvement. His appetite for fashion photos did not prevent her from trying out other style. Raw talent I told you.
During my recent trip to Cameroon, I could not miss the opportunity to realize this collaboration. I’m rarely wrong for these things but I must admit I have a little underestimated him. It only took few hours of brainstorming, few minutes to find the right place and 45 minutes of shooting for something that I wanted “without a fuss in my neighborhood. I imagine a contrast between the look and the environment you see? “. Difficult to explain it better and he actually gave life to my vision. Better still, he called me out, remembering me to be myself “with your attitudes that ones we know out there” when, somewhat intimidated by this know-how, I shut myself up. The result? Beyond my expectations, glamorous under the sun of Deido.
Douala, June: get ready. I will be back soon.
For this shoot, I chose Shopkaramelle wide legs pant and a basic Zara t-shirt. Contrast remember? I wanted to break the structured side of the pants with a loose t-shirt for a control mess as I like.
Enjoy and remember: pensez, appliquez, modez!
