17 July 1859 - 29 December 1936
Who was he?
Rober Demachy was a French pictoral photographer who was best known for his intensely manipulated photos that displayed a distinct painter like quality
Robert started his work sometime in the late 1870's where he began experimenting with photography, nobody knows who or what influenced him to start but due to his living circumstances he could afford to put as much time and money into his work as he pleased and over the next 30 years would devote himself to taking pictures and writing about photography.
I used these images as my inspiration and research i still find it hard to believe that these are photographs and not paintings
