By extracting archetypical situations from his own intimate world and personal experiences, Frederic Guillaud tries to create a generic understanding of our society.
Each piece is inspired by daily beauty, smooth lighting and colour arrangements which depicts a painting of his personal life.
Fred Guillaud (b.1973, France) is a photographer, architect and teacher living in Barcelona since 2000. His urban landscapes shot exclusively on film are admired for their atmospheric banality and visual appeal. Architecture plays a major role in Fred’s work when he judiciously projects his camera to capture transitional negative spaces often placing a small human figure categorically in his frames to give it a social context. The resulting images are bright with a limited palette, patterns, and serenity.
