Pauline Rochas and Carole Beaupré, two young New York photographers, explain their current series entitled Bones. One look and what you see is a figure against a brooding dark background that appears both sensual and enigmatic. A nod to the Duo’s eye for the mysterious allure often found in the shots in their body of work of fashion and luxury products “natures mortes” or “still life” as the francophone prefers to call say. A deeper look and you sense the spiritual and symbolic subtext of what looks like nature’s answer to pre-fossilized figure studies. Inspired by the notion of death and the life being born from death, Carole & Pauline have always seen bones as objects of art.
