In an exclusive photoshoot for Aserica, Arlet Johnson, a Paris based photographer, takes us on an aesthetic journey through the streets of the French Capital. In suburban settings with edgy styling, Arlet captures the model in his signature style using natural daylight. Known for focusing on his subjects to reveal a sense of authenticity and humanity, Arlet’s shots are full of raw emotion with an urban chic feel.
In his recent work Arlet has been drawing inspiration from his native Togo, a small country on the west coast of Africa, travelling back there as often as he can to explore and experiment. His next trip to Togo will be to complete a work in progress, a photo series of portraits of ordinary people, men at work, family and friends. The work will show the repetitive and often difficult daily lives of the people of Togo.
