Romain Laprade is a Paris based photographer notable for his warm, pastel shades. Through his lens, buildings such as the Palace of Serbia and John Lautner's Sheats-Goldstein Residence are captured in a soft, dreamy glow. Laprade splits his time between location-specific photography and works for various clients. He’s been commissioned by high-quality skincare brand Aesop and travel magazine Monocle.
“It’s always Spring in Romain Laprade’s photographs.”
He focuses on patterns he finds in architecture and the natural world.
He’s well-travelled. Laprade’s portfolio includes photo series from places as varied as Buenos Aires, Marseille, Morocco and the Danish Coast. He always seems interested in hot climates, and how natural light effects and bounces off the materials he comes across in the world. Colour photography innovator William Eggleston seems like an obvious touchstone for Laprade, not least because so much of his work is based in the USA, as does Wes Anderson’s cinematographer Robert David Yeoman. He tends to position his subjects slightly off-centre, leaving room in his images in which his particular colour saturation can make an impression.
