ORPHÉE

 

 

A NOTE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER…

“Since moving to Paris I’ve become very interested in the work of Jean Cocteau. I’m very inspired by his work at the moment and became fascinated by the idea of creating a surrealistic, mystical story about the transition to another dimension. Mirrors, illusions, perhaps it would even be black and white.

I especially love Cocteau’s Orpheus and Testament of Orpheus films so I thought it would be interesting to create this sort of narrative, playing with the concept of time in terms of still images. Much like in the work of Roni Horn.”
