Francois Aubret

“To me, minimal photography means simplicity and humor. It is the ability to turn the most mundane daily life scene into a magical work of graphic art. It makes people smile and appreciate simple beauty in their own daily lives.”

François Aubret


François is a French photographer but lives and works in Los Angeles. His “Graphic Encounters” are a documentation of hidden urban geometry and patterns that he encounters in his everyday surroundings.

In his works, he often juxtaposes the man-made nature, the colors, the textures and the abstraction of reality. His goal is to surprise the viewer with the extraordinary beauty and humor of the seemingly banal.
