Laurent Baillet is a French photographer who uses long exposure photography to present different perspectives on everyday situations. Baillet is curious about cultures and atmospheres that he reproduces with great sensitivity.
For his series Art and People he made the museum his favorite playground. Tate Modern in London and Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid are the main topic for this series. On the images you see masterpieces of Picasso, Malevitch, Goya or Monet together with faceless and almost ghostly characters. It’s a more abstractive approach; Baillet also captures the passing visitors of the Museum, which results in a symphony of colors and movement, always with the same intensity.
