The situations presented in CEREMONIALS unquestionably share some mysterious interpretations: tragedy or comedy? If the formal aspect of a ceremony seems to link them, the motivation and the reactions of their characters as well as the symbolic elements are difficult to understand.
Are they an analysis, or even a caricature of our everyday life? Are they linked to reality as suggested by the clothes and contemporary places? Or do they have to be considered independently of a precise context - entities of their owns?
No explanation emerges: from the global view of the situations to the more microscopic inspection of each character (and his/her motivations or sometimes ambiguous reactions), each approach brings a different interpretation. The keys will never be shared.
Without dogmatism nor a literal approach, CEREMONIALS plays with imagination.
CEREMONIALS is an ongoing project.
Very emotive. Neat project.
Magnifique ambiance et j'adore le résultat !
Merci Tu retrouveras les autres images sur mon site, je ne les poste pas toutes ici.
The concept is great and the execution is brilliant. Your lighting is spot-on perfect as well. Very nice job with this.
Thanks a lot! Fortunately, 4 people are helping me on this series, each one handling one flashlight. It becomes then easier to direct them to achieve what I'm looking for.
This looks really amazing. I love how the is an aura of mystery and suspense to it.
a beautiful surreal shot, waiting for the story to unfold. great!
