About Florian ruiz


 

I’m a French photographer who creates projects in desperate, stained, and disillusioned social situations. My aim is to express the atmospheres, feelings, and sensations of desolate places.

I try to capture the in-between, life at the margins, and borderlines of lives and places. I am currently using rudimentary photographic equipment, a pinhole camera, to portray the unexpected, the fortuitous, and the deformed as a multiple reality. It allows me to capture the landscape as time unfolds.
I used assembly, collage, super impression; processes that reinvent and twist the very landscape.

I'm living and working in Tokyo.
