Photographer Théo @theolefoll talks about what photography means for him, how it enables him to express his ideas and show the imperfection of beauty.
“Photography allows me to express myself, to escape, to understand, to explain, and most importantly it allows me to feel alive. Photography is something very deep and personal. I find that there is something rawer and more alive in the use of film. Something you cannot find in digital. The whole process of using film makes photography more meaningful, from the camera to the photo development.”
“The beauty of imperfection is the essence of my art. Photography is about stopping time, capturing emotions, and store them in a bag that will follow you for the rest of your life. I would like to capture a moment whose life will prevail through time. When I see a scene that I want to photograph, I just know, I feel the balance within the scene. I stop and I take that picture. I try not to overthink or overcomplicate things. I am drawn to the colors and the way that colors render in the film. And how they interact within a given scene, a certain moment. With film, It’s just different, it’s direct, it’s physical. There’s a tangible quality that negative provides and digital cannot. With 36 frames, you have to. Slow down, breathe, open your eyes, watch the world pass you by. Wait for that moment and go for it.”

This story is about a return trip to my agent Polis. I live in the 6th district, and he lives in the 16th district. During our first appointments, I come almost every day, we always had things to see. I came for modeling, but in the end, I always ended up taking more pictures of the people there than my modeling photos.
