Raoul Gatepin

I read something about Raul Corrales the great Cuban photographer and thought it might be fun to do a post about photographers named Raul. But then right away I found the site of a French photographer named Raoul Gatepin who lives in Los Angeles and felt he deserved his own post. His pictures make me miss LA and making photographs there.

Beautiful work-- thanks so much for bringing it to my awareness :) Nice site too, by the way (I came here from the "lies I told my three-year-old" post).

Hello. I feel like i've won a great prize!
I came to your site by way of Fazal Sheikh whose work I find totally fascinating and inspiring. and then your blog was awesome and then i discover your wife's blog and I too am an 1.5 generation K.Am and looks like we are all in Brooklyn! I love it. Thank you and you've gained another reader!

good day
