VIEW IN MY ROOM
This image was produced 100% in camera. No tweaking was done in post, except adjusting light and colors. What I created could be many things. It's a portal inside a dreamlike vortex. I wanted to create an imaginary trip within a macro or micro world. It could be under the earth or above. It could be under water or in the air. It could be tiny particules inside the body. It could be something huge in space. More info in Bio page about why I’m obsessed with dreamlike vortex and portals

My name is Laurent, I'm 50 years old, born and raised in France. I went to college in the U.S,A., and I live today in the Principality of Andorra. Since the day I was able to hold a pen or a brush, I made some art. After trying pretty much everything possible during 45 years, today I settle on photography. I understand photography as reverse drawing or painting. Instead of starting from a blank canvas, then adding elements, a photographer has to eliminate elements until everything is in the right place within the frame. Fine Art and Street Photo are my main interests at the moment. The work I display on Saatchi Art is about dreamlike vortex populated with orbs. As a kid, do you remember staring at the small vortex created by water going down the drain in the bathtub? The images displayed in the portfolio are one of a kind. It was produced 100% in camera. No tweaking was done in post production, except adjustment to light and color. Also, each picture is a limited edition of one, making it a unique and valuable photography. Usually, photos are reproduced, but the Vortex collection will remain a ultra limited edition of 1/1. For the past 45 years, I experimented many different art forms, but representing vortex and portals to another dimension has always been an obsession. In a surrealist approach, I tried to recreate my dreams or nightmares. The camera enables me to create dreamlike vortex that run around my mind since I'm a child. Before, I was drawing, painting or sculpting them. There is a technical twist within the lens, in order to create these imaginary worlds I like so much. Photography is not an end in itself. I incorporate photography within the global artistic spectrum. Even if I made art since I'm a kid, I decided to present it to the world now. I never really shared anything before. It feels like I was practicing during 45 years, and finally I became brave enough to share publicly my work.
