Ronan Guillou's photography may be cinematic, but that doesn't mean that each scene has been staged. In fact, they are far from it. Instead, Ronan Guillou uses his impeccable eye and timing as well as the occasional instance of dumb luck and chance encounters to capture the moment in an impressively candid manner. In his American Series, Ronan Guillou focuses on various themes such as 'Downtown,' 'Void' and 'Driven.'

Born and based in Paris, France, Ronan Guillou brings a subtle European flair to his otherwise gritty, documentary-style photography. With a solid focus on composition and lighting, he lets his subjects do most of the heavy lifting. Without the characters Ronan Guillou captures in his American Series and other portfolio work, his photos would not be as memorable.
