Laurent Dequick is a professional architect in his forties. His photographic work has been influenced by architecture, since it is primarily focused on ideas surrounding the contemporary city and more specifically, urban sprawl. The photographer's message is to accurately convey the impression of freneticism stemming from population density and activity in urban zones: "As you walk down the street, the lights, noises, traffic, hustle and bustle, and mix of smells are so striking that no single shot could capture all of it. So do we have to make choices? I don't think so and I don't want to."

He fits together photographs representing architectural complexes, highways, and people, all with the same intensity.

His style is reminiscent of cubism in its rendering that verges on abstraction in its representation of constant motion. ... Lees verder Less minder
