About the AuthorPhilippe Blayo
Hi, I’m a french photographer. Not a pro, it’s not my job. It’s my passion. I got into photography when I turned 20 and as it was in the early 90s, I was a film photographer. I used to create my own black & white films and develop them in my darkroom, just as a lot of young photographers - or so called - during this period.
I was mainly inspired by american movies featuring photojournalists such as “Salvador”, “Under Fire”, “The Year of Living Dangerously” or “The Killing Fields”... They have inspired me when shooting in France during the protests on the first Gulf War.
But, as I decided not to be a photographer, I turned onto street photography, which is, for me, not so far from photojournalism. It’s always about story telling, people, and synchronism.
