Here are some advanced images from my new book that will be out soon, called «Révélations photographiques», written by Louise Bombardier, with whom I've already worked on a previous book, «Petits Fantômes mélancoliques».
The text is cut in 16 little stories, each of them being about a photo shooting session, à la 19th century, and mostly about the characters being photographed and their trauma.
I've been pretty free to work as I wanted on this project; it seems Louise and I are on a same tracks when it comes to ambiance, and «funny» stories.
The book will be published in Canada by Les éditions du Passage pretty soon, as a small art book.
Here are some images from our first collaboration, back in 2007.
Each text was based on Balthus painting from which Louise was crafting a story.
