Photographer of the Week: Keffer

Fabien Hebert, the photographer otherwise known as Keffer, is a Parisian whose recurrent subject is nightlife. Quite simply, one night he took his camera out with him and started shooting on instinct, without even looking through the viewfinder. He has never looked back.

He shoots mainly in black-and-white because that’s how he sees nights out: ‘washed-out, rough, raw’.

He began taking pictures backstage at nightclubs, and found the girls ‘really let themselves go’.

‘So I got to document this kind of public erotic downfall, which they were completely cool with.’

Not every girl behaves well when out at a nightclub. Well, actually, I can only think of a few that do…

And when a girl misbehaves, what is to be done with her?

Parisian nighttime acualité isn’t the whole of Keffer’s work. He also sometimes shoots with models.

The model whose work is going to interest us is called Elyksir, a lady of versatile talent and variable hair color:

She shot with Keffer and an unidentified male model on March 1, 2012. And by the looks of it she’s another one who misbehaved:
