Visual Q&A: Benoît Rousseau

Visual Q&A: Benoît Rousseau

Photographer Benoît Rousseau’s mantra is simple yet powerful: “I shoot strangers in a game where the French street photographer loses more often than he wins. I'm just trying to show you the city I really love.”

Rousseau discovered photography in 2008 and instantly decided to make it his life’s work – enjoy this visual interview which showcases his passionate documentation of Paris:
