Laurent Roch

living in France – visit artist website

Laurent was born in Paris in 1970. He received his first camera when he was 11 years old and began photographing his family and daily life. He studied economics and worked in the financial world for ever twenty years, and now lives in the region of Nice where he often exhibits his photographs.
In the true, open-air theatre of the streets, Laurent Roch is a curious spectator, reacting to what he sees. He constantly pays attention to detail, and looks for harmonious and graphic elements.
Through his work, he tries to transcend the banality of everyday life. It is this mixture that he feels makes these pictures curiously timeless, full of humanity and often expressionistic.
