French director and image-maker Romain Laurent creates photographs, cinemagraphs, and super-short videos that insert a bit of wonder into the everyday—a woman sweating hot dogs in the presence of a crush, another dressed in a wearable waterfall, a baseball game attendee with blinking binoculars, a surfer suspended in the middle of a busy sidewalk. Along with personal projects, Romain, who is based in Los Angeles, has created similarly surreal works for Nike, Hilton, Epson, and Citroën.
