My recent work , the result of five trips between 2015 and june 2019 ,
is based on the history of New York street,
many years later, it still a certain heritage of urban culture by people 
who hang out in the streets.
The soul of New York does not disappear
You will also see in this home page some photos taken in Paris, Berlin and London

    Salut, JuliAN!
    Je suis allé faire un tour sur ton blog. J'ai commencé par la fin. Tu sembles fasciné par les sucettes...
    Une approche psychanalytique du sujet montre que c'est un retour vers l'enfance pour ce qui est de jouer avec les couleurs, les formes, et le gout sucré, quant à l'aspect adulte, là pas besoin de faire trop de bla bla....
    Je regrette que certains de tes clichés soient surexposés, mais ca viendra.
    Les sujets sont intéressants.

  2. Je suis avec mon pote Benoit Moyen et nous venons de regarder ta production, c'est très prometteur !
    continue comme cela, déjà du talent, bientôt la gloire !!!!
    a dimanche


  3. J aime beaucoup ton travail j aime bien le fait que ce soit surexposé justement c est ce qui donne ce ressenti un peu absurbe qui emane de tes mises en scènes! J aime bien ton univers! Bises à bientôt! !
    Johanna du blog

    1. Des BISOUS Johanna!!!moi aussi j aime bien ton blog...! a lot of kiss, yuyu

  4. Je kiff vraiment le les couleurs de tes photos et le patadoxe entre l enfance et la rebellion me parle profondément! Bises Julian

  5. Quand je lis les commentaires au dessus c'est comme si tout s'éclairait (je ne suis pas encore une bonne juge pour connaître l'histoire des photos). Mais les expressions "retour en enfance" et "décalé" sont très vraies. Les photos sont vraiment très bien réalisées! Vous avez beaucoup de talent :)


  6. Bonsoir Julian,
    Des féminités affirmées, des images bien composées, parfois au détail près ... Tes photos dégagent à la fois la grâce et la force de tes sujets.
    Beau travail (et pourtant j'ai l'habitude d'être critique).
    Estelle du musée, du Palais des Beaux-Arts (peut-être que tu ne te souviendras pas de moi mais tu m'avais donné une deuxième carte).
    Bonne soirée

    1. Coucou Estelle, je me souviens toujours des personnes à qui je donne ma carte!!!!merci beauucoup d'avoir pris le temps de regarder et pour ta curiosité et ta jolie critique, ça me touche, big Kiss, julian
