Matthieu Venot

French photographer, Matthieu Venot, started his creative career playing guitar before pursuing photography. Now days, he focuses on highlighting the sunny, graphic details of his urban surroundings. Preferring to refer to his work as abstract photography instead of architectural, he uses tight crops and repeating patterns to pull the viewers in. The photographs seem surreal in their vacant landscapes, as if the human world vanished, and the landscape happily responded to their absence. To obtain this vibrant abstract subject matter, Venot only photographs when the sun is bright, providing the cleaner, sharper lines and shadows. The results, show the town he resides in, Brest, France, in a light compared to Walt Disney World. A happy place. The photographs are so smooth seeming that they mimic the look of paintings.
