LOL PROJECT, when laughter reveals you!

“Laughter is as important as medicine!” – Dr. Tissière

The experience of “laughter together” with the LOL PROJECT establishes a relationship that allows for surprise and the unexpected.

This photographic moment triggers spontaneous reactions, promotes reciprocity in the relationship with others it awakens, and brings vibrancy and reactivity.

A photoshoot with a real experiential dimension that helps address resistance, seek self-improvement, take a step aside, and reveal unsuspected issues inherent in human relationships.

This participatory project, based on the idea of “laughter together,” has resulted in over 35,000 portraits in companies and hospitals all over France. A massive gallery of portraits aimed at bringing smiles to those who need it most. Thanks to his humanity, David Ken manages to arouse and capture that magical moment of “letting go” that benefits both the body and soul. Between humor and love, there’s only a small step, which the photographer happily takes. His photo sessions leave all participants with unforgettable memories, both for the good spirits and the encounter with a resolutely optimistic artist.

Initiated in healthcare settings, the photographer’s massive project also takes place in corporate environments, during events, especially during seminars, team building activities, as well as at corporate events and conferences.

Portraits et People !

“Making a portrait is, for me, the most difficult thing. It’s a question mark placed on someone.” – HC Bresson

It’s impossible to be as positive and profoundly humanistic without excelling in the art of portraiture! David Ken has immortalized thousands of everyday individuals and taken rare emotional shots of dozens of celebrities. Actors such as Jean Rochefort, Clotilde Courau, Audrey Tautou, and Samuel Le Bihan have posed for him. Presenters have also taken up the challenge: Nagui, Philippe Bouvard, Arthur, Stéphane Bern, Michel Drucker, and Nikos Aliagas, among others. The portraitist has also directed the likes of footballer Zinédine Zidane, Florent Pagny, or boxer Sidney Beau Jack Walker, directors like Steven Spielberg, and Olivier Marchal.

From fashion magazines to the streets of Paris, from corporate reports to conferences on the benefits of laughter, from photo projects to forays into the world of advertising films, David Ken’s life is a vast portfolio! Relentlessly, for over 30 years, the artist explores the world and shares his impressions through sensitive and emotionally charged images.

Humanity is definitively man’s most beautiful invention! – David Ken

& Masterclass

In addition to his work in fashion and advertising, photographer David Ken expresses himself in another world: street photography. In color or black and white, he captures moments, gazes, postures, and plays of light with rare virtuosity.

nspired by the greatest street photographers, the artist wanders his lens somewhat randomly but always on the lookout for the decisive moment. In his project “Facing Paris,” he pays homage to his adopted city, to those who live in it or visit. The project has resulted in a book of the same name (out of print) and an exhibition, showcasing fifteen years of snapshots.

Today, he shares his passion through MASTERCLASSES, attracting more and more photography enthusiasts.
