Piece description from the artist
Shot in Lagos,Portugal, summer 2011
Jean-Baptiste Saint-Pol grew up in France and studied photography and audio postproduction at the University of Valenciennes. Since 2009, his photographic work has involved the use of toy cameras and a variety of experimental analogue photography techniques. He loves obtaining saturated and abstract images without any post-production. He has collaborated with artists Satomi Sugiyama (USA), Stephan Knaps (Germany), Carolina Perdigoto (Portugal), Wei Lie Jie (Singapore), Catherine Olsowy (France), amongst others, in film swaps. An active member of the Lomographic Society International, he has been a tester for prototype cameras and is considered a "lomoguru" by his colleagues. Today, Jean-Baptiste is based in New York, where he keeps shooting and developing his art.
