Paul Rousteau: Fleurs de Paris
Who: Paul Rousteau
Where he was born: France
Where he lives now: Paris; Pantin to be precise
What he does: photographs
How it all began:
I decided to do art school 10 years ago. I’ve worked since I was 4 years old.
How he captures ideas:
I have a lot of ideas. I try to organize them. Sometimes it makes good pictures. Sometimes not. I just have to edit. And I look at lot of different kind of images. Here are my references and moodboard: capturesdimages.tumblr.com
If he were a sound:
Maybe an A-minor chord. When I used to be musician I ve always play this chord. Sometimes 30 minutes when I was alone and stoned. Its a bit mélancolique, but I found it very inspiring.
He believes in:
Power of mental, positive thinking.
Something he needs to change:
Life always makes me change!
Something great he’s read:
The last one Instructions for happiness and success by Susie Pearl, advised by the great actress Celine Salette.
The most interesting art today:
I don’t know. Limits with life and art is really delicate now. I like the idea of impossibility to define what is art or not. Everything is art, isn’t it?
For working, Late Night Tales by Niels Frahm and for fun, the song “Bitch Better Have My Money” by Rihana.
His most recent artistic reference:
The garden of earthly delights by Jerom Bosh and the French painter Pierre Bonnard
Why he takes photos:
I try to reveal mystery and beauty.
Where he finds peace:
When my kids are too noisy, I find peace on toilet with my phone 🙂
Paul’s WILD Wish:
To continue my ongoing personal project on religious communities and cults. And continue to work with beautiful magazines. Traveling. Being a good father.
