DISTANCES by Romain Laprade

フランス人フォトグラファー、ロマン・ラプラード(Romain Laprade)の作品集。「Vogue Paris」や「Holiday」などの雑誌でグラフィックデザイナーとして活動し始めたが、15歳の時に感じた写真への情熱を捨てきれず写真家へと転向。機微に冨み観る者の好奇心を駆り立てる画面を作り出し、一見平凡で退屈なものの細部に焦点を当てることで作者独自のイメージへと昇華している。温かなトーンや構図の感性、自然光を利用したその作品は、Aesop や Rimowa、Mr Porter、Hermes、Isabel Marant など多くのブランドともコラボレーションを果たし、それぞれのブランドの魅力を写真で世に伝えて来た。本作では、モダニズム建築を被写体にすることで、自身の美的感覚や写真を用いた言語を通してその「線」や「面」を写した。心を落ち着かせるような細かな描写やミニマルな構成、とらえた光は、作者が直近の5年間で多くの写真を撮ることで得たものであり、詩的かつ絶妙な絵を作り出している。

Romain Laprade is a French photographer. After his studies, he first worked at Vogue Paris magazine as a graphic designer and then at Holiday magazine, but his passion for photography, which has inspired him since the age of 15, finally led him to make it his job. The photographs of Romain Laprade evolved in a few years into a subtle and intriguing visual signature. His style stands out by focusing on banal details that he transforms into iconic images. His warm tones, his sense of composition and his solar work also interest brands in the constant quest for novelties and help to make them recognised through various publications. (Aesop, Rimowa, Mr Porter, Hermes, Isabel Marant, ...). Romain Laprade freezes lines and surfaces through his own aesthetic and photographic vocabulary, often drawn from modernist architecture. The anodyne details, minimalist compositions, marked lights, which he accumulated over the last 5 years in many photographs, are capable of providing an exquisite and poetic look on the world.
