THOSE PARISIAN SQUARESAbout this photograph
For Guillaume Dutreix, electronic music and photography are similar in their creative process. Whether it be existing sounds to be harmonised through a synthesiser or raw coverage to be assembled using retouching software, the result is the same and the artist enjoys experimenting with these elements using a computer, like a chemist in a lab. Through careful work and an unrivalled degree of precision, he composes perfect melodies and images. When he takes photographs of urban landscapes for his Instagram account every day, Guillaume Dutreix already has an image in mind, inspired by an emblematic site. Although he seems to continually reinvent reality, the frontality of this façade and the almost perfect symmetry that is revealed through the prism of his camera is reminiscent of abstraction in painting. Guillaume Dutreix brings Parisian architectural heritage into relief, along with the harmonious lines of Haussmannian style.Read more Read less

French photographer based in Paris, he was born in 1982. He attended a business school (option: entrepreneur) where he started his own electronic music label, Archibell Records. Musician in the band Teenage Bad Girl, he has produced two albums and performed in over 200 concerts internationally, between 2007 and 2011. His passion for music grew out of his training as a percussionist. He discovered photography through his grandfather, a very advanced amateur, who had his own darkroom at home. Second discovery in 2007, with the purchase of his first non-digital Canon AE-1. He recently took a postgraduate course at Les Gobelins in Paris to learn different photographic techniques.
