Le Couple

This body of work has been created with the inspiration of french cinema, especially movies by my all-time favorite french directors Jean-Luc Goddard, Leos Carax, and cinematographer Jean-Yves Escoffier. The most compelling aspect of French cinema is its versatile experimental nature and the underlying artistic vision behind how each scene is designed and directed to convey a story or emotion. 

This series borrows many images from classic film by paying attention to shot angles, lighting, patterns, contrast and composition to emulate film stills and tell a narrative. The consecutive photographs develop a narrative about a couple that not only presents intimacy, but also highlights the distance that comes with such unspoken conflict. What could be more simple yet complex than to capture the minds of two lovers? 

The work itself is not meant to be taken literally, but to be appreciated as a piece of art, as it is a recreation of reality and a documentation of imagination.
