Paris People

LWO is the artist behind Paris People. With this project he wants to explore in depth those feelings we experienced about strangers everyday. He describes his work better than I would ever do:

"The story:

A strange population has invaded the city. Most of them spend their day watching what's happening in the streets. Everyone seems frozen in a posture. Most often standing, sheltered behind large plate glass windows. Some lower their eyes, others seem to be watching you stubbornly. Sometimes they smile. They remain however discreet, staying behind the sidewalk. Although they were unknown, their silhouettes become familiar over the meetings. We can see a wide variety of profiles. However, they are all beautiful. Also, note that they rarely change their clothes (when they are not nude). In any case, their poses insured encourage us to make a portrait. What I have done. "



You might have noticed the frequency of posts has been slowing down lately. I'm sorry about that,but I have so many exams around the corner.

Love the layering. They're even better once you know the story behind the art.
