The /den/ of Metaux Lourds

Yes, she’s back: this is Metaux Lourds! I’m so thrilled to have shot again with her because I believe we share a lot of the same values. Marine and I met first for a shoot for /positive motion/ project - along with some beers and extras, but that’s another story - and since then, I was eager to collaborate again with her.
She’s a great person with a lot of deepness in the way she perceives life. She’s a strong woman, a feminist, an open-minded person and a lot more. All values I relate to, so I’m grateful she welcomed me for the /den/ and opened her intimacy to my camera.

The /den/ of Trayolp

I’ve often been asked if I wanted to switch roles and get in front of the camera, not as a photographer but as a model. The answer is …. No, not really. It’s a really difficult step for me because it’s not the way I compose my pictures and I don’t project myself into this role. It’s not really a different state of mind, but I have the feeling I would be deprived of my tools of creation. Obviously, I could still be involved in choosing light and composition but surprisingly I have more control by communicating with a model who will interpret my signals than posing myself.

The /den/ of Sonya

I’ve been following Sonya Hibiscus on Instagram for a while now and always been amazed by how joyful she can be. When I asked her if she wanted to be part of the /den/ project she immediately said yes and here we are shooting in her small flat in Paris suburbs.

The /den/ of carpethatfuckingdiem1910

In my last article, I explained how did I build a simple project in order to meet new people and yet fulfill my obsession with entering into one’s home as a deep dive in one’s intimacy.
Intimacy... this word is to be found on a lot of photographers websites as an excuse to shoot nude girls, spreading legs in private moments. Sure, there is some value in exploring the most private and intimates moment, aka love and sex for 90% of the series I’ve seen, and some are really great with a very profound sense of both aestheticism and connection. In my photography, I am interested in people and to my mind, there is much more to explore about one’s intimacy that only love and sex. That’s why I want to connect, be invited into your home as it is, with your mess and no judgment.

Introducing the /den/ project

I’ve been obsessed with people place and how it can reveal oneself for a while now: /home/, /persona/ are testimonies of my past tries dealing with this rabbit hole. Lately, I’ve been focused on building the /equi.libre/ project which is a pretty complex one, involving multiple models, staged aesthetics, location finding, complex lightning ... and I really needed to have an alternative project running: one which would be lighter, easier to set up, and properly sized to encounter new people who I would involve in other sets: this is how I gave birth to the /den/, of which I must say I’m pretty excited about!

Ada Ardente, Alma ou l’ardeur & Mimosa Pudica in /equi.libre/

Pursuing the /equi.libre/ project, I wanted to go a step further and set up a shoot with more than two models, creating balances and imbalances between them. Ideally I would have wanted to get at least one guy in the equation, but to be honest I’m slow as f.. in organizing my shoots and lately I get so easily overwhelmed that I don’t get enough time to introduce models with each other.

Introducing /equi.libre/ feat. Jeanne & Louise. A tale about being human.

For a long time now, I’ve been working on trying to express how human we all are. Feminism, body positivism, equality, freedom, self-esteem are so many themes I wanted to introduce into my photography because I strongly believe we are not yet free to be ourselves, free to be. All these concepts have something in common: they describe human sides of personalities which are somewhat oppressed by some other people because of [Insert here some random bullshit people think they’re right about]. Right, humans oppressing humans for the sake of being right.

No & Matt -twice as a /persona/

The way my photography works is directly linked to what I have to express and lately I’ve been working on a new project that would deal with couples, love, humanity, relationships … In this attempt to create something new I recruited No & Matt for several tests and working sessions and I totally failed … at creating something new.

/positive motion/ Marine aka Métaux Lourds

Even if my projects evolve, /positive motion/ is one that I will pursue in the long term, at least as long as I have positive emotions to express :)

Nayrash for /persona/

I’ve shot several series with Leah during the past two years, and each time the pleasure to discover new personality sides is renewed. She’s a very multi-sided person with a lot to offer, especially being in a kind of between two generations.
