Member Feature #4 with Nujabes

Journal Entry: Sat May 19, 2012, 6:01 AM

Hello there

I'm dekorAdum, and my duty at Urban-and-Rural is to feature submitted artworks. Recently we decided to change the way we do it, and instead of themes & Featured folders, we decided to pick only one Member and make a little interview with them to get to know our members a little more and I'll feature amazing U&R photographers every second week!

Here is our next Featured Member, romainjl

First of all, thank you so much romainjl for taking time and let me interview you!

#1 When did you start taking Urban & Rural Photos?

I started taking urban photos just after my arrival in Hong Kong in 2009.

#2 What kind of equipment do you own for taking photos?

I have a Nikon D5000 with few lenses. For urban shots, I mainly use my Nikkor 18-200mm and my Sigma 10-20mm.

#3 Do you have a favourite Urban & Rural Photographer here on deviantART?

Curiously, I don't browse much urban photos on deviantART.
My favorite photographer in this field is Michael Wolf, but he doesn't have an account here.

#4 What are your favourites from your own gallery and why?

For graphic art I would choose :

Birth by romainjl
Tribute to Nujabes by romainjl

because they are related to artist / piece of art that impressed me very deeply.

Regarding photography, I would choose :

Flying through the city by romainjl
Hong Kong Standing out of the crowd by romainjl
Hong Kong : Street flow by romainjl

I think it's because I like to see how the density and crowd can actually look calm and tidy when you take some distance from it.

#5 How or why did you start taking U&R related photos?

When I arrived in Hong Kong I was amazed by the unique urban environment there. The density of buildings combined with a great richness of details made me want to take my camera and record it..

And now more amazing photos from the deviant!

Hong Kong crossing by romainjl
Hong Kong human flow by romainjl
Hong Kong West Kowloon by romainjl
Langham place by romainjl
Hong Kong : Sky glimpse by romainjl
Hong Kong : Jordan by romainjl

Stay tuned for the next Volume!
