Laurent Roch

location Alpes-Maritimes, France

As a child, Laurent Roch often saw his father paying special attention to the composition of family photos. This is when he has picked up this concern for details. As a teenager, he began to photograph the world around him. He quickly understood that through photography, it was possible to transcribe what we felt, to verbalize in picture the mood of the moment. At this time of his life, he was a frequent visitor of the movie theaters. His vision of the world was mostly developed by the works of Jean-Pierre Melville or David Lynch than by the great masters of photography he had vaguely known.

During the 2000s, for him the act of photographing became visceral. He learned that the banality of everyday life was not insignificant when one looked at it more closely. There is always a way to extract a form of contentment from the senses and visual pleasure. It was sometimes said that his work was melancholy or nostalgic. He does not really know if this is the case; perhaps when he captures the moment, he is already in a form of regret for passing time.
