French Photographer Sophie Fontaine Shoots Poignant Portraits In Film

Her words are poetic and she shoots film, may sound a bit familiar but Sophie Fontaine shows us something dramatic and unexpected in her artworks.

Such poignant photographs resembling old paintings, beautifully crafted silent dramas in every frame here draws attention and makes us wonder if we are watching the works of a photographer living in 2015. Sophie draws such artistic lines between 4 important words, composition – observation – concentration – calmness, to be frank these are very compelling and more like yoga kind of words which may be easy to speak but hard to practice.

“Photography was an obvious choice, as a natural continuation of my pictorial work, and more especially film photography. I find back in this discipline the pleasures of composition, observation, concentration and calmness. To familiarize myself with shooting, I started to take pictures with a digital camera, but then film photography brought me closer to the colours and grain searched for creating timeless atmospheres,” she said.
