Flickr a Day 323: ‘L’accordéoniste’

We continue seven days of Paris street photography, with the fourth, self-titled “L’accordéoniste”, or “Accordionist”. Sylvain Courant describes: “Joueur d’orgue de barbarie sur les grands boulevards” (“Barrel organ player on the big boulevards”.)

Sylvain shot our Day taker on Dec. 23, 2012, using Canon EOS 5D and EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens. Vitals: f/2, ISO 400, 1/125 sec, 85mm.

Translated from French, “I consider myself an atypical photographer”, Sylvain says. “Photography allows me to showcase my artistic talent that it’s hard for me to explore my original business: Finance”. He is an avid street documentarion, a role he finds to be rewarding. Our shooter joined Flickr in March 2012. You can also find him on Facebook, Twitter, and his website.
