Showing the world as a place that appears to be in frequent conflict between stillness and movement, Yvon Buchmann's enviable portfolio channels the humanism of post-war photography masters as Willy Ronis, Robert Doisneau, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Though he’s been known to shoot in color, Buchmann’s preference is clearly for the power of black and white photography, for which he uses natural light to turn any scenario or landmark into a vast canvas.
