When we first came across Adrien Toubiana it was for his extraordinary family portraits in the inaugural Figure magazine, a publication that we’re desperate to reach its second edition. Since then we’ve had a rummage through his entire portfolio and it’s become clear that he’s one hell of a photographer – there’s nothing this guy can’t do. Whether it’s crisp editorial shots, street photography or staged, abstract compositions Adrien maintains a lightness of touch that’s an absolute pleasure to behold.
On show here is a personal project and collaboration with Eli Serres Mon Petit Coeur Tombe en Panne Sèche that we’re keen on for obvious reasons (not just the nudity) but we thoroughly recommend spending some serious time enjoying the rest of Adrien’s portfolio as the rewards are plentiful.
