Street photography from an angle.

Pierre Toussaint is a Belgian photographer born in 1982. He lives and works in Brussels.

Pieces of streets and fragments of people in black and white are both objects here, carefully put – I almost wrote “on canvas” . These photos are built by the photographer as a painter would organise an abstract painting. Here in particular, you don’t think about any portrait of an old lady, but of lines, volumes and contrasts.

What I find remarquable in this artist’s production is the strong link between the human figures and the urban landscape. All are one with the street and it creates mystery. Arresting!
