Light and Shadows

At first glance, you would expect Christian Coigny’s photographs to come from a bygone era of black and white glamour and simple sophistication. Contoured shadows, tight compositions, and crisp lighting gives his photography both a timelessness and the nostalgic feel of long-lost summer vacations. I am enamored of his still-lifes, especially in the way he handles napkin folds and petals, as they have a certain painterly and otherworldly quality about them.
