It’s a common occurrence for people to find themselves being surrounded by clutter in different areas of their lives. The photographs by Cerise Doucede entitled ‘Égarements’ show her subjects being enclosed by floating objects in their natural environment.
The erratic stills were achieved by attaching strings to each object to give the illusion of absent gravity. The shots typically took about three days to shoot, according to Doucede. The strings in the photographs were intentionally displayed in her work, because she didn’t want to convey a full sense of fiction in her work, but a mixture of reality and fantasy.
We don’t know about you but we just love it when talented photographers, such as Cerise Doucede, invoke intriguing and inventive ways to rethink photography. Even stronger: the photography of Doucede by far surpasses the level of everyday photography. Her pics are complete installations in which she, to our knowledge, invested a lot of thought and effort at the level of composition, probs and colors. Actually taking the pictures with these kind of stagings is just the last part of an intense and often complex process. www.cerisedoucede.fr
