Laos & Myanmar

There used to only be two options as a photographer using lighting – You go where you want and capture things as they are, or you stay put and light things how you want. Rémi Chapeaublanc got to take a third option for his latest photo series: both continuously moving and shaping light.

“I believe the purpose of life is to keep discovering new things and meeting new people,” says Rémi. “Photography is the perfect motor to drive myself to do just that.”

With this mission, he utilized lighting during his trek for Profoto through Laos and Myanmar. With his gear instead of darkening the background, he subtly incorporated it into the images.
