“All around me can be inspiring, especially being on the street, because you can meet an unpleasant old, rich woman with her 4 little dogs or an homeless guy smiling, – it’s always a surprise.”
Antoine Harinthe, is a young photographer based in Paris, whose work has many different facets. On one hand there is a cool, young vibe and on the other hand a very thoughtful capturing of small and hidden details of daily life. We spoke to him about his work, life and favourite place in Paris.
Tell us something important about yourself?
I’m Antoine, a 23 year old photographer based in Paris
You have worked in advertising – not an easy field, what have been the most difficult things and the things you have learned from it?
That’s true – not always easy but I have learned a lot about the working method, some complementary things like layout, graphic design… I discovered a different approach.
You then decided to focus on your passion, photography. What is it that fascinates you that much about this medium?
I’m fascinated by capturing images and scenes that I find strong and that share emotions.
All around me can be inspiring, especially being on the street, because you can meet an unpleasant old, rich woman with her 4 little dogs or an homeless guy smiling, – it’s always a surprise. I love to discover some places too.
Where do you see your life in a few years?
Hum, I wish I could discover some countries, move around and meet differents things and take a lot of pictures and work as much as possible in freelance!
Your favourite place in Paris?
L’autobus a local popular bar at the corner of my street in the 11th district. There is a juxebox with nice old songs and the boss is cool. He gives you big glasses for little money and that helps to appreciate it ahah
The most important thing in life?
Doing a work that you love, travel and meet people, discover places and share things.
