This week we present the works of two of our readers. The first one practices aerial photography and the second, street photography. Two different visions of reality, two readers picks.

Andre Elliott

To Andre Elliott, a 23 year old artist based in California, reality cannot be understood without perspectives. For this reason, among other things, he practices aerial photography. “It enabled me to slow down, to pay more attention to the world. Taking the time to contemplate our environment leads to a better understanding of the world”, the photographer sums up.

“I am a city-dweller. I spend most of my time in the city. This is the environment I grew up in, and I have always loved exploring it, as if it were a maze”, Simon Péret explains. The 31 year old photographer, based in Clermont-Ferrand, France, is a computer engineer. His job pushed him to explore the city. An exploration he has been pursuing by documenting his environment. His aim? “To isolate a piece of reality and to show a fragment of the city”.
