Paul Viollet became interested in photography since he was 15 years old. By following some classes at college while handling a film camera that this artist always knew that he wanted to make a career into the image. He studied at ISCOM Paris, then he became artistic director in advertising agency. For more than 9 years, he has been working on conception of ideas, as well as visual design, collaborating with photographers, illustrators and filmmakers, among other.

It is in 2016 that his more personal project named “Anomaly” is born. His goal ? Produce aesthetic and surreal images ; realistic images at first sight, with the work of light, tints, perspective and composition, but which finally switch in the imaginary by various elements.

“The images created for Anomaly are associated images that do not work together. It is by associating them that the “anomaly” is naturally created.” He tells us. He says : “In my opinion, the anomaly is more effective if there are few associated images together. I always value a minimalist approach, I wish my final image is simple and seems obvious.” 

From a skater in the air to a flame-lamppost through an infinite pool or a basketball hoop at the top of a hill, all his “anomaly” can be found on his Instagram account.
