A while back we started a series of interviews in which we talk to some successful and influential professionals from the multitude of fields that make up the photography industry. In the first interview in the series we spoke to Paul Cabuts, Academic Subject Leader In Photography at the University Of Wales in Newport and he gave us some great insights into his involvement with photography and how he came to be working as a University Lecturer.
For the second installment in this series we have been extremely lucky to have been granted an interview with esteemed French photographer Denis Rouvre. Renowned for his award-winning portrait photography, his work has been published and exhibited in France and internationally and he has released several books. Prizes won by Rouvre include a World Press Photo award and a Sony World Photography Award and he was recently named Hasselblad Master of the Year 2012 in the portrait category. We caught up with Rouvre to find out more about work, his inspiration and his approach to photography just in time for the start of our 200 Faces tour which kicks off in Crawley tomorrow.
