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!

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.

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.

/persona/ – Noémie

The beauty of working with models for creating art is how much different are the people you meet. I first met Noémie while working on /discloser/ set, a project where a model uses her body to express emotion and personality sides. Despite she's a young model, Noémie has strong opinions and ideas on how she is the owner of her own body, how she can or want to use it as a mean of expression for feminism.

/Persona/ This is Amanda

I met Amanda on Model Mayhem: she's from Toronto and even if she speaks French we decided to talk in English. I'm quite comfortable with it, so I decided to write this post also in English -- hope you don't mind :)

/persona/ Pauline

Il y a maintenant quelques semaines j’ai eu l’opportunité de rencontrer Pauline qui m’a accueilli chez elle pour raconter un nouvel opus de /persona/.
Comme toujours dans cette série, le story telling est important : si cette fois les clichés sont un peu plus sombres, le lecteur attentif y trouvera aussi quelques petites choses ramenées du japon.

/persona/ Anouck

La nouvelle itération du projet /persona/, qui a commencé avec Bouh il y a quelques mois se poursuit avec Anouck qui m'accueille cette fois dans le sud de la France. C'est aussi l'occasion de poursuivre le travail sur le storytelling, travail qui vient se renforcer par un traitement plus cinématographique que photographique.

/persona/ Bouh

Ce projet a connu bien des variantes au cours de ces dernières années, et quelque part je sens que je ne suis pas encore au bouh du chemin (=^_^=). Si le sujet de la personnalité est toujours central dans la démarche, j'ai essayé cette fois ci d'améliorer la partie Storytelling. Il en résulte un certain nombre de clichés comme autant de marches vers des facettes de personnalité.

/persona/ Leah

Cela fait un petit moment maintenant que j’essaie de travailler sur des projets de shoot en situation. Je suis passé par beaucoup d’étapes comme le montre la page projet dédiée à /Persona/, et j’avoue tatonner encore.

English content Originally posted on ELLO

Last Sunday, I shot with Lea. It was not the first time we were shooting together, but this time she welcomed me in her very home in order to make a try for new « in situ » project. Actually « new » is not quite right since I’ve already tried multiple times to deal with this tendentious project of shooting home.

In the past tries, I either brought my studio flashes or some kind of strobist installation. Let’s say it straight: I didn’t really achieve anything that good. I mean, I’m not an expert but I don’t consider I’m in trouble in studio. I know pretty much what I do while I’m in studio , even if I don’t really know many lightning techniques. But when I’m on location … I never reach a sufficient satisfaction level with flashes or strobes.
