The Night Day Portraits

Teki Latex

Night, a place inhabited by unknown wildlife. A mixture that is not found nowhere. There is very little vision of this world, often hidden underground, emerging only rarely during the day, meaning living against time and against the system. A world in another world, or some come to work, others for fun. The night is fast, while little change overnight, people leave, come back, hide, change their appearance.

The Night Day portraits, an almost instant snapshot of that life without the sun, 3 years of reporting on people who make and remake the night in Paris.

The stars, the unknown, the opportunists, the organizers, enthusiasts, artists, etc ... Some left, others are not even arrived yet, but these portraits are here to show the incredible diversity of this world, this universe, that few know.

My job was to capture this population, without distrub it and putting everyone at the same level.

Artistic black and white, a black background, a light hitting the ceiling of the nightclubs, only the attitude and some physical details show the personality of the subject, nothing more.

This is the story of another life.
