Domestic (Dis)order. This ongoing project started with the birth of my eldest daughter as the only solution I could find to carrying on with the type of photography I was interested
Suburban Marrakech. Photography for me is a pectoral way to tell a story and evoke feelings. I utilize the camera as an instrument to preserve life in the act of living.
Tel Street is not a studio. Street Photography moments.
The sound of silence. One of the themes that I constantly photograph is the relation of the urban, capturing the movement, flows both of the city and of the people who compose it at a specific time of action in relation to the displacement between both motives.
DeadliNNe Vision. My submission it´s my vision of the world, what I most like to watch and what makes me interested. I like to work in old style, it makes me feel more what I am capturing and also the mood around.
São Paulo. From head to toe I photographed my city, São Paulo, a gigantic city, with dangers like any other city, but with its excellent locations, buildings and bundles of light and reflections. Cliché but I inspire myself in it, and walk through it.
My point of view. This is a series of some of my street photographs, I prefer black and white because I love to emphasize the shadows and the lights; often shot with the viewfinder set in black and white for this reason.
Devotion. In Cusco, Peru the faithful claim that the effigy of Christ held off an earthquake that was threatening the city over 350 years ago. Ever since, the locals have been paying homage to the image of the Lord of the Tremors or Taitacha Temblores, as it is known locally.
All We Have Is Now. My first self-published zine. A selection of everyday images sprinkled with a generous handful of surrealism and cynicism.
Walking through the city, enjoy the sensations, shapes, textures that this emanates and make it somehow yours through photography, is a way, for me, to understand and understand that we are part of the same without excluding ourselves and therefore return this captured energy in a positive way.
Agri-Culture. Agri-Culture, An incomplete guide to the English county show. This is a long term candid project (started 5 years ago) to document unique moments at county shows, typically held over the English summer time, and where farmers, animals and the general public get together to observe man and prize beast.
Pier to Pier. My project ‘Pier to Pier’ is about the beach culture in my home town Scheveningen. The location where I shoot is always between the northern fishing pier and the iconic pleasure pier with the big wheel.
Colors of my mind. I like to capture my surroundings. Those spontaneous moments happen in front of me, maybe they will never happen again. I always try to invisible myself and anticipate in the magic.
Glimpse into those moments. The camera compels me to stop and pay attention to the environment, to see and feel people and situations around me. I find myself instantly and instinctively drawn to subjects and, often without advanced planning, find myself looking through the lens at the same things…
AMORica Latina. Since 2013, Aurélien Ernst travelled extensively to South America in order to achieve his main project entitled “AMORica Latina”.
Pocket Beach. A beach long 2,5 Km in Marina Di Massa, flanked to historical buildings, dating back to the Fascist period, that still at a distance of years, affect the territory and vacationers who frequent the beach.
The key to reading my photos is the contrast that light creates with the shadow, I could summarize my approach to photography with a quote from Goethe: “Where the light is brightest, the shadows are deepest”.
Battle of Algiers is referred to the battle symbol of 50-60s war, starting migratory flux from Algeria to France. An Algerian wedding of a very young couple in which guests and relatives show that there’s nothing warmer and joyful then the celebration of two families connecting each others in folklore, dancing and tradition.
