Interview with Damien Vignol, Parisian Street Photographer (in Marseille)

When I was in Marseille, I had the chance to interview Damien Vignol, a Parisian street photographer (who was originally from Marseille!). I was surprised to see his images and love for street photography (considering he has been shooting street for less than a year!) He shoots mostly with his film Leicas for his street photography and has shot mostly black and white in the past – but now is focusing on shooting color slide film. Check out my interview with him above and check out his images below!

    What was the name of his light meter app? I listened 3 times, but I couldn’t understand that.

    • Damien

      Hi Philipp, The app is called “Posemètre”. It might come under a english name as well.

      It’s literally called “Light Meter” in the US apple app store

    Damien, who was the first photographer you mentioned? Thanks. (love the work)

      yea I couldn’t hear either

  • Pete

    Nice color work…not feeling the mono.

  • Daniel Bykhovsky

    A few of the shots are a bit cliche but all of the photographs are composed very well. Even if Damien has only been taking photos for less than a year it is hard for me believe that he doesn’t have some sort of artistic background. He has a great eye for what makes effective photographs.
