Photographer Hubert Crabières comes from Paris and he is not the gray tone kind. His characters pose in the strangest, least attractive and more bizarre ways they can. What’s the use in complication. He places them in front of the camera and they show pure untidiness and little shame, creating moments as cheeky as excellent.
Crabières has a sinister but delightfully grotesque touch that turns his images into something more than just portraits of a generation; they are examples of rejection to beauty, which, at the same time, makes them more appealing. For Hubert, colour and composition are basic when shooting. He has no fear of over-using flash if needed and generates such a weird athmosphere that makes us want to know what’s going on behind his pictures.
