Matthieu Venot is a self taught photographer based in France. He learnt his techniques mainly from watching tutorials on the internet! He has six series of architectural abstractions depicting his infatuation with colors and shapes. “Before I began to take photographs, I wasn’t really that interested in architecture but I wanted to show the city that I live in my own way so I used buildings, especially their details, to create abstract images,” says Venot. I love when I find other people that enjoy taking pictures of walls as much as I do. Venot’s work is pure joy. “I am an optimistic person, I try to convey this optimism in my photographs. I go out on sunny days because I like to use the sky like a clean background which is not disturbing the composition. And the colours are more powerful when it is sunny,” says the artist. Seeing ordinary objects as simply shapes and colors was the theme of my last series Absurdist Summer. The crisp edges, bright colors, everything about these photos makes me giddy.
