There is no doubt when looking at PR’s pictures you may think of Peter Lindberg’s photography.
He is the first to admit where he gets its inspiration from.
However, his style is unique.
After graduating from France's University school of economics,
PR began his career working in the movie business, assisting Movie Director Roger Vadim for 5 years.
You may like PR's esthetics, his aestheticism, his simplicity and sense of spontaneity in his images.
But above all, you will do total abstraction of his technicality and only see the emotion he arrives to transcribe.
There is not a shot that he took where the eyes, the face and body tension is expressing a feeling, a story.
It is always about the story, and with no emotion, there is no narrative.
The process is always the same. First come the picture with its emotion. PR is unique.
The way he shoots, the way he directs you, the way he will make you move. He will teach you estheticism,
talk about philosophy. He is a existentialist after all. You will have hard time to say no to the guy. His energy and charisma will surprised you.
And he will definitely make you shine.
There is no retouching, no alteration in his photos only a black and white filter.
He called it the “Tri-X treatment”.
The contrast, grain and also the range of grey will speak for itself and like PR said:
Everybody look better in Black and White, but above all,
black and white help to show what people really looks like.
After seeing his job as fashion photographer fading away over the years, and loosing his main agent.
In 2016, PR decided to exposed his best fashion, portraits and nude photography, working thru Saatchi Art.
In the summer 2017. PR found, few blocks from his studio, on the side walk, a 5x5 feet stretch canvas.
He took it (this is Brooklyn!) and brought it back to his 4000 Square feet empty
white studio located in the Gowanus where he mainly shoot his pictures .
A story can start with just a small detail, a paradox.
This white canevas against this huge white wall was a call.
It was collage time.
