Fabulous Pictures of Paris (France) in Black and White
Sven Fennema is a professional photographer born in Xanten, Germany. His passion for photography started in 2007 and since 2009, he’s self employed with the company name Living Pictures. He participated in numerous national and international publications & exhibitions.
On his photographic trips he travels several countries like Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg and France where he finds unique treasures to photograph. The focus of his art are “Lost Places” – Deserted places of buildings, stripped of there functions. The artistic play with modern architecture also belongs to his focus. The geometry of the buildings, their shapes and lines he uses as a kind of tool. The resulting work is focused on excerpts of them – revealing new perspectives – snatched from their wholeness.
Each of his pictures is the result of the confrontation and connection with a place, its atmosphere and its history. From this impact Fennema shapes his concept of an image – Long before he builds up his camera and plans all the following steps according to his imagination.
This is a set of Fennema’s few days trip to Paris (France) in spring 2011. His focus was just on the modern side of the city. Although he’s usually a “colour guy” he decided to go for a classic black and white conversion in the series. We hope you like his view of the Paris!
