Romain Jacquet Lagrèze Talks Cityscapes and Fine Art Photography
Despite hailing from France, Romain Jacquet Lagrèze has found a new home, at least photographically speaking, in the concrete jungle that is Hong Kong. Surrounded by the ever-changing landscape of Asia’s financial capital, Lagrèze’s fascination for urban structures and their geometric qualities have propelled him to shift away from his original design and illustrative works to become a fine art photographer. In a series of photo books and exhibitions, most notably his Vertical Horizon and Wild Concrete releases, Lagrèze documents the organic and somewhat chaotic aesthetic of the city in captivating fashion with a specific focus on art. We caught up with the photographer while he prepares the launch of his latest book and accompanying exhibition, to talk about his personal style, fascination with cities and the collectible aspect of print works.
