Hi, my name is Axelle and I like to photograph mostly things, very often in a city because I have mainly lived in big cities -mostly Paris- which has shaped my view of the world. There is some inevitable randomness in what I photograph so far: I definitely have a special taste for things and cityscapes. But I also like taking photos in the countryside when I get the chance. I am now based in Florence in Italy so I should have opportunities to take shots of the Tuscany countryside and force my photography to evolve.
Sometimes people appear in my photos but mainly as figures. I like when the city is almost desert except for some figures which enter the photo as forms more than people. Faces are always very distant. I do not tell story so much - and maybe I should work on that.
This is how I would resume my photography: forms and figures: I try to capture the contrast of lights and shadows on immobile things. If you’d like to have a look at my blog, please visit axelleaflorence.tumblr.com
