Name Vincent Bard
Occupation civil servant
1. Tell us about yourself in three sentences maximum?
My name is Vincent, I’m 38 years old and I live in PARIS. I have been using the Lomo LCA for around 5 years now.
2. Why do you still shoot analogue?
I generally use film and have done for 15 years now because I like the grain and the texture of the images.
4. Share a trick of yours that will always result to a great photo.
I used to cross process and I think the best moment to take a photograph is outside, in the morning to sunrise. This time of day makes your pictures look less intense or aggressive with more detail.
5. What photographers influence your work?
My work is influenced by a lot of photographers, all with different styles. I prefer Ernest Haas ’s work and Henri Cartier Bresson’s work too.
Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions Vincent!
