Sometimes, no matter how focused you are, you need to step out of the pressure zone and just have fun. That’s precisely what photographer Romain Laurent decided to do when he opted to create an animated portrait of his friends each week.

Rather than photographing the stock standard personal portraits you so often see around the web, he decided to experiment with his subjects and animate the bizarre. The result of his work is a series of hilarious and decidedly ludicrous images the traverse the line between nonsensical & strangely hypnotising.

“As far as the intention of the series, it’s a way for me to explore a hybrid medium, experiment and being spontaneous while still sticking to a short weekly deadline. There isn’t a common concept between each loop, I just ‘go with the flow’ and see what comes to my mind each week.”

Make sure you follow his on-going project via his official Tumblr profile – where laughs and confusion are guaranteed.

自主作品を作ることでマンネリのルーティンから解放されようとすることがある。写真家のロマン·ローランも、ルーチンから抜け出すために、毎週ループアニメーション化されたgifの肖像画を作成している。
写真家のロマン·ローランは、一時的に商業プロジェクトのルーチンから抜け出すために、毎週ループアニメーション化された肖像画を作成することを自分自身に課して挑戦した。Absurd Animated Portraits by Romain Laurent portraits humor gifs
大げさな実験は期待せずに創造的に実験しようにする低圧方法だと本人は表現している。確かに我々も受注する仕事は成功体験を模倣することを求められることが多い。

過去の作品や実績を見て依頼が入ることが多いので当然かもしれない。そこで最近のクリエイティブの会社は一定の分量で自主作品を作ることでマンネリのルーティンから解放されようとする。

Romain Laurent é fotógrafo e exerce sua profissão na França, onde nasceu, em seu portfólio listam-se clientes de peso, como Coca-Cola, Citroen, EMI e Discovery Channel, porém, no campo artístico-cultural, Laurent é mais conhecido pelo seu criativo trabalho de edição e montagens de fotografias das mais variadas temáticas e vertentes.

Laurent utiliza-se de uma técnica básica de fotografismo sob diferentes perspectivas de captação de imagens, que depois são editadas via photoshop para fins de obtenção de um maior realismo de cores e sombras, como produto final, obten-se inusitadas fotografias que, aos olhos de leigos, representam situações impossíveis de acontecer na rotina das pessoas.

O trabalho do francês encontra-se exposto em todos os lugares e galeria modernas do mundo, porém o mesmo sempre focou suas obras para o público francês, fato este que justifica seu sucesso no país em questão, embora, dada a qualidade constatada nas fotos abaixo, pudesse fazer sucesso em qualquer que fosse o lugar.
