Akatre is a creative studio founded in 2007, in Paris, by Valentin Abad, Julien Dhivert and Sébastien Riveron. The trio works and expresses themselves in graphic design, photography, typography, video, artistic installation and musical creation for institutions in art, cultural, fashion, media and luxury. Their portfolio is compromised by amazing, well balanced, interesting works but what blow my mind was their spectacular photographic projects. Their images and productions know no boundaries, from obscure to contained, humorous to unexplained results. Be sure to enjoy them or visit their website at http://www.akatre.com/
