I’m Raphaël, I’m a “1990 born French Graphic designer DJ” who comes out of school the last year.
I like hard shadow, back portrait, silhouettes, nature, texture, fog, grain and mistake…
To be honest i’m not a photographer with a lot of technics, that why I use mostly compact fixed lens film camera, and also because I like it raw, dirty and personal, like a diary !
Back in time when i shot mostly live show I used to walk around with a Mark II after my classic Rebel XTI but i was bored by the impersonal side of DSLR camera… So I sold everything and bought few analogs cameras, a scanner… and a small and cool X100S !
Generaly I take the ricoh GR1S loaded with b&w roll, this one blew my mind but i’m also afraid to lose the lcd screen…I take as well a Yashica T4 with some color film and my X100S who is my only digital camera. Then i take all the time a backup sweater and beanie (or cap) to be comfy all day, some usb sticks, tools, backup batterys and a funny gopro… and voilà !
My big regret is all the time the same… I don’t take enough pictures !! I was in berlin and i only shot one roll during one week ! hit me !
And there is few others guys at home :
