The individual appears to disappear in Laurent Baillet's photographs. Using a long exposure, and condensing many instants of time into one image, Baillet captures the moving, flowing humanity in our cities, and sometimes the moments of stillness that lie within them.
But much of the stillness…Show more comes from the city's architecture, leaving human life depicted as transient. In his banal moments of people blended into a crowd, you sense the loss of the individual.
Baillet is only now emerging as an art photographer after a successful career in corporate marketing and strategy. These experiences make him well-placed to comment on globalised culture, and our perception of reality and time in the urban environment.Show less
"Laurent Baillet elevates everyday scenes to stunning works of great beauty by using long exposures which capture both the movement and the stillness of urban life. His prints look amazing in corporate spaces but would be equally at home in a domestic setting."
