About The Work
« Getting closer »
Minimalist and graphic, this is my gaze on the city and its details. This is how I can sum up this series. I take photos for the aesthetic pleasure, it feeds my graphic view of the world, I don’t do it 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 gray city some color. Playing with colors and materials, I try to put my focus on detail, cut to the essential and give relief to heaviness. After all, who says we can’t find excitement in the boredom of routine?
WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS THE PHOTOGRAPH PRINTED ON?
All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
WHAT IS THE PRINTING PROCESS USED?
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
IS THE IMAGE SIZE THE SAME AS THE PAPER SIZE?
NO! Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum of 0.5 inch white border. This is an artistic decision that belongs to the artist. Margins don’t normally exceed 2-4 inches on each side depending on the final paper size.
Eglantine Lavogez is a very young photographer, fresh out of school, who’s based in Paris. She photographs cities and their suburbs. After spending a while in a renowned Paris school of photography, she finally decided to pursue her photographic journey on her own.
Her vision is characterized by a search of daily aesthetic and harmony to be found through her immediate environment. Eglantine’s eye got refined by the ceaseless scrutiny of exhibitions and master’s books as the likes of Mark Cohen, Ralph Gibson & Ernst Haas… As so many before her, she wonders around town, searching for an element or a structure that will catch her eye and push her to stop. Photography allows her to get away from a confined universe and to create her own rules. The strength of her photographs resides in their spontaneity : nothing is forced, nothing is reflexive, everything is about instinct and the present moment.
