Damien Girard

Snapshots to dream your Sunday away.


Those things that “locals” no longer notice, Damien Girard marvels at. The Paris-based photographer (and fashion marketing student) elevates the human traces of life from the daily landscape to harmonious art form. From Beijing to New York, through the momentary snapshots of urban scenes Girard minimizes the distance between the viewer and the subject, resulting in an unsettling intimacy. “The presumption is that a photo doesn’t reflect reality; it’s merely choices and interpretation. I’ve taken this idea further to consider it a lie.” Thus Lying Tapes was born, the ambiguous name of Girard’s Tumblr account, which comprises a contemporary compilation that accepts mistakes to better enjoy life. The ultimate place to dream your Sunday morning away.
