M/M Paris is an art and design partnership consisting of Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag, established in Paris in 1992. They are best known for their art direction and collaborations with musicians as they originally started out in the music industry making album artworks. Since then, they have managed to branch out and gain some credibility for working with fashion designers and for magazines. They Like to listen to obscure music to get inspiration from.

M/M Paris like to experiment with photographs of human figures and manipulate the images to create text, like in the image below. This is the sort of direction I’d like to take my photography in and really work into the images. For the piece of graphics
