About Alan Aurmont

    

Who is he

A master of the art of silence, a deep thinker, perceptive, occasionally silly. Fascinated by nature, the hustle and bustle of a metropolis, and the peacefulness of a summer afternoon. Soul-searching, esoteric, rooted in tradition yet a rule breaker, introverted yet expressive with a masculine softness, poetic sarcasm, and intense passion. Possesses creativity and a drive to impress, a style he can call his own, a lovely quirkiness, an exceptional aptitude for linguistics, and an incisive eye for capturing that something special through photos; photos that capture his time-consuming, seemingly momentary feelings, a piece of reality taken to another level, subtlety others may miss and never see true beauty the way he does.
