The idea of this Photo editorial, was playing on perceptions, the ambiguity. Working on the illusion (a background in a background) and the backstage of a photo shoot.
The order of presentation photos to an important role for the understanding of the series. All First we have two diptychs, each with a close-up and a portrait in the background where you can see that we have on the outside. Then comes a wide shot where we see that in reality we are absolutely not outside but in the studio with flash in a basement Following the continuous series with more or less tight shots where you can see the details of the backstage, flash, flight case, tripod, background …
The idea was that the model is a nonchalant, casual, cheeky, which corresponds to the spirit of the place, the basement where it’s dark, where there is dust. And to contrast with the attitude of the most glamorous looks to go with the style of clothing. We also played the ambiguity with the clothes worn by doing both at the place upside down.
