A stranger, subway, 89 years old


Very good selection about my Stranger Project : FUBIZ
New Book Portfolio: Book
interview: virusphoto
publication plateforme 14 mag : série Môtel


Démarche pour cette série:
Interroger le monde moderne dans lequel on vit et tenter de briser l'individualisme et l’anonymat de la grande ville. En allant dans des Non-lieux (métro, centre commercial, rue passante à l’heure de pointe) et en demandant à des étrangers de les prendre en photo, je brise pour quelques instants le fonctionnement habituel de ce monde moderne. Je rend ces Non-lieux existants en y créant un événement dont l’étranger va se souvenir.



Approach to photography for this serie:
Questioning the modern world in which we are living and trying to break this individualism and the anonymity of the big city. By going into “Non-place” (no existing places) (subways, malls, and crowded streets at rush hours …;) and by talking to people to take photos, I break the usual way this modern world works for a few instants. I make real these “non-place” by creating an event that the stranger will remember.

24mm f/1.4 I'd bet.

Nah for the depth of field is he used a 1.4 the face would not entirely be sharp.
I think he used a 70-200 f2.8
That lens has a much better depth of field for portraiture.

it doesn't look that close. i bet it's a 24mm then at 2.2 or a 50mm at 2.2. I don't think it's 70.

sorry to burst your bubble, but it has to be either the 24/1.4Lii or the 35/1.4L... or maybe the 50/1.4

clearly not a longer lens like the 70-200/2.8L due to the wider angle perspective distortion seen...


There is hardly any reason to be talking about the lens though due to the photo its self being the subject matter

soooooo, another nice shot sir :)
