Get Featured: Laurent Laporte
Todays featured photographer is Laurent Laporte. Laurent has captured the culture that follows the horses in Ireland. Going to see the races is a family affair there and Laurent shows this in his fascinating series.

Hello Japan Camera Hunter!

First I would like to thank you for your incredible work, this website is really my favorite about photography. The selections are always interesting and that’s why for the first time I decide to send a photo series to a web magazine.

I shot this series in the Shelbourne park greyhound stadium of Dublin last month. A few months before, in Paris, I heard from a friend that a lot of interesting things happened there. First, the bets are organised by the official bookmakers and the unofficial ones which are very elegant people around the stadium. Then I heard that may is the month of the communions for all the young dubliners. Their parents come here and drink, eat and bet a lot with their children who wear beautiful white dress and small suits.

I finally decide to go their and spend a few nights with them at the stadium, this experience was amazing.

Short bio: I’m a french photographer based in Paris, I am passionate by documentary and fashion. I travelled a lot with my analog camera, trying to find strange subjects like old surfers surfing together on a spot named Old Man’s in San Onofre, very young wrestlers in Senegal or more recently in Tibet when I met a group of monks passionate about sneakers.

I hope you will like my series.

    Dear Laurent,
    Great work.
    Do you have a website where we can continue to discover your work. I really like your photos which are in HCB style.
    Now, I follow the amazing Leica work of Pierre Alivon I will add you on my short list of great actual photographer.
    BRAVO et MERCI.

    Excellent read Laurent! Your images tell the story but enjoyably not the complete story. Some things are left to our imagination and the glimpses only make me want to know more about the people in your photos and the background of the event. Bravo!
    Regards,
    Chris

    A nice series of pics.
    Everywhere we look, there are these moments that can produce photo stories.
    I’m glad you took the time to document this.
