20under20 photographer: Greg Ponthus

Greg Ponthus grew up in the countryside of Lyon, where he lived in golden light and grassy hills. He stole his first camera from his dad when he was 15 or so and immediately started shooting people he lived with. And two years ago, he moved from France to attend an art school in Brussels.

Here’s an expressive portrait selection of his brilliant work that’s known for fantastic tonality and emotional content:
