Romain Duquesne - Photographer

Romain was born in Belgium and comes from a delicious mix of French and Italian. At the ripe age of 22 the man has already had his work featured in STM magazine and has many more projects in the pipeline. The boy is so sweet and humble, I kinda wish he would just blurt out, 'Hey, my photos are fucking awesome!' Because they are. It also helped that homeboy rocked up at my house in a fly pair of dunks and shares a passion for Kate Moss. Oh yes indeedy.

I prefer fashion photography because ... I prefer to create a scene, rather than capture it - I have a vision in my head of what I want it to look like, and it gives me a thrill to see that develop.

My favourite photographers are ... Steven Meisel and Mert & Marcus. Whenever I look at their work it makes me never want to stop and think I'm good enough.

If I were a bird, I'd be ... an Albatross

I would love to live in ... Paris, based on perceptions I have from watching Amelie

If I wasn't taking photographs ... I'd find another creative outlet to fill my life.
My favourite designers are ... John Galliano, Alexander Mcqueen, Christian Lacroix

For breakfast I enjoy ... Scrambled eggs with sliced chili, bacon, corn relish/sour cream, spinach and 2 large slices of bread. As you can see I love my food.

I would love to photograph ... Sasha Pivovarova and Gemma Ward

I think the Obnoxious Owl ... speaks her mind. It's admirable.
