NEW YORK CITY POSTCARDS A 35mm STORY


“To me, it’s the best place for streetphotography”


My first edit is about my love for 35mm BW photographs and Big Apple. Each time I’ve been there, I brought 35mm camera and BW rolls. For my very first time in 2013 it was a tiny black Rollei 35 SE and Kodak TriX 400 rolls. For the second time in 2014 it was a Contax RTS, 35mm Zeiss f/2,8 and Kodak TriX 400. And finally the last winter it was a Leica M6 TTL, 50mm summicron f/2 with Kodak Tmax 400. 

All photographs in this edit was shot in New York (Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens). Big Apple is an amazing city, there is too much to see, eat, or even photograph.

To me, it’s the best place for streetphotography, people are friendly and the architecture is fantastic.

Grégoire Huret is a self-taught photographer based in Paris and shoots 90% film and 10% digital capture. (“Tete de loup” literally means wolf head but in idiomatic French translates as children, much as we call ’em “kids.”) Huret’s low key site design has a white background instead of the black many photographers feel compelled to use that results in white text on black, which isn’t all that easy on the eyes. A white background, on the other hand, provides a digital paper effect and making text easy to read while providing equal emphasis on the photographs.

In this case, there are nine groups of image that read as classical photo essays, rather than mere collections of images. All of his film-based essays are monochrome; the two digital are color and the contrast in how Huret approaches each is different and interesting. In Nice, for example, the grainy black and white images have a loose reportorial, even voyeuristic style.

While in Digital 2 the images are brighter (and obviously more colorful but really colorful) and he seems physically closer to his subjects allowing them to play out their roles on life’s stage. Which is best? It doesn’t matter because both are impressive in their own but dissimilar ways. Huret is a keen observer of the human comedy a recorder of the everyday but not in a haphazard street photography way. He is part anthropologist, part philosopher and all artist. The simplicity of the site design allows you to get up close and personal with his images and the scenes and people depicted within.”
