Photography: Strikingly brilliant images from Rennes’ Gauthier Chambry

Bits of automobile, flashes of torso, unusual flora and fauna, unexplained smoke, high-kicking dudes on hilltops, miniature motors and smiling blind men all crop up in Gauthier Chambry’s photography alongside collections of shod feet, abandoned building sites and skateboarders on satellites. What these things have in common is anyone’s guess but the Rennes-based photographer brings them all together under the roof of his portfolio and somehow makes them feel at home – like they all belong together. It takes a talented eye to do this, and the young Frenchman certainly isn’t short on skill, but you sense that he’s also got a natural eye for a great image that allows him to unite these disparate elements with ease.
