say hi to_ Romain Laprade
When I first came across Romain Laprade's work I was transfixed and transformed into his atmospheric midcentury scenes. It is truly an art to be able to photograph spaces in a cinematic way which oozes ambiance. Romain perfects this art, photographing modernist and post modern buildings throughout France charged with mystery and all of the charm of a Nouvelle Vague film. I spend a great deal of time looking at images, specifically of interiors and his work has stuck in my mind since the first time I saw it.
I had the pleasure of having a coffee with him here in Paris when I realized we were based in the same city to hear about his inspirations and work. Soft spoken and polite, he even didn't make fun of me when I accidentally poured salt into my seven euro cappuccino.
Have a look below at his atmospheric and moody interior photographs.
