My approach is a staged photography work where the characters evolve in situations crossing the limits of the ordinary. Every photograph is a suspended moment: “The floating moment”. It’s a time lapse before “the decisive moment” as described by Henri Cartier-Bresson, generating pressure and mystery in the picture. Will the characters meet thanks to an unknown force (le jeu du hasard)? Will an event change their lives (Venetian Blinds)? The spectator is invited to picture the end of the story by interpreting the mysterious feelings coming from the characters.
Two medias are used: photography for the characters and 3D/CGI modelling for the background. I’m looking for a balance between the coldness of the digital background and the real emotions shown by the characters. It leads the spectator into a world close to reality where the unspoken lets them fantasize about the end of the story. An in-between is created where the artificial is stuck in the real world with a strange ambiguity.
