French art director and concept designer Nicolas Bouvier has been capturing photos full of life moments. On his Flickr Photostream, he has a superb collection of black and white photographs, bursting with moments of melancholy and solitude. Very stunning and mesmerizing!
But the ones that have struck me the most were the photographs with a child in an eerie scenery with deafening silence. The aloneness in a desolate and grimy place was simply heartbreaking. If you have children, you know what I mean.
I don’t know what else to say. I think I will have the photos speak for themselves. I’m sure, each one is worth a thousand words.
I just want to say one thing though. Nicolas Bouvier is a brilliant and talented artist. His depiction of “sadness and sorrow of Life” in black and white photography is insanely beautiful and natural.
Anyway, enjoy the photos below.
