Featured Street Photo by Lionel Buffe
This time around we are featuring a photograph by Lionel Buffe. Buffe hails from Valenciennes, which is a commune in the Nord department in northern France. He shoots using a smartphone because he finds it to be a convenient and discreet camera that is always on him. All post-processing gets done on the phone. So his gear and studio fit entirely inside his pocket.
By checking his body of work found online, I understand he is an enormous fan of the surreal and the mysterious. He enjoys playing with light, shadows and reflections in such a way that give his photos a unique feeling, a metaphoric stamp “by Buffe” one could say, a signature feel. This is the reason I chose one of his pictures for today’s feature.
