Florent Tanet: minimal still-lifes and colors
Florent Tanet is a French photographer and art director working and living in Paris. In 2013 he devoted himself exclusively to photography and art direction with a strong interest for still-life.
Graduated from the Duperré School of Applied Arts in Paris, after various experiments in several fashion houses, fashion design and art direction, he began to develop his collection of photographic work that mixes his obsessions: still-lifes, Minimalism, colors and daily objects.
Multidisciplinary photographer, he works at the intersection of art, sculpture, graphic design and photography. His photos make ordinary scenes and objects into something complex and remarkable. Florent takes complete freedom with the objects and use them as material to create his compositions.
He puts a lot of attention to the composition which he considers the strength of his series, paying attention to the color range, cutting, symmetry, organization, geometry, etc.. “I consider my compositions as sculptures or paintings, in which there is no place for randomness. I spend a lot of time on the layout of my productions, which is what gives it interest.”
