Raul Guillermo says about himself:
“I was born in Lima, Peru 27 years ago. I arrived in Paris in 2014 when I decided to do my post-graduate degree in international relations. In 2016, I decided to follow my passion and study photography.Today, I love working on my personal projects and observing my surroundings while I live in the French capital. My work is oriented towards the simplicity and the pureness of things. I think that a good photographer has to create great impact with not so much. I always keep that in mind when I’m shooting.”
The intention is to alleviate in some way the load that suffocates the living city, giving presence to the objects and circumstances that inhabit the corners of the city of lights. Just a reminder that Paris is a diverse, integral and growing city that sometimes is blinded by our eyes.
Also, to admire with subtle, humorous and emblematic elements the surroundings. As an example, an old metro chair transformed in the shape people sit or a smiley toilet seat. Encouraging the viewer to notice these details of interest in different situations that we can find in an emblematic city like Paris.
