SPOTLIGHT: Romain Laurent’s Loop Portrait Series
This is truly amazing. As most of his photography projects follow a long process from inception to final touches, Romain Laurent started this project with the idea to create or find again some personal rhythm and spontaneity which are sometimes hard to maintain while working on bigger scale ideas.
The concept is simple: shoot and share online at least one animated/cinemagraph/whateveritscalled portrait a week.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
