Gentle Strength, Bold Freedom

A Few Words About Muses

“Muse,” a term I long to reinvent, distilling it to its purest essence: raw, unfiltered inspiration. Softness, often mistaken for fragility, is actually a formidable strength. My muses are women of remarkable resilience, each one unique, bold, and delightfully irreverent. They defy conventions and stand firmly against societal expectations with unwavering determination.

Like the wild nature that nurtures their spirit, these women embody an indomitable freedom, an untamed independence that refuses to be controlled. They are as tenacious as the wind, as impetuous as the waves, and as nurturing as the earth itself. In their presence, one can perceive the profound connection between the human spirit and the untamed beauty of the natural world.

These muses, with their unyielding courage and embraced individuality, symbolize the blossoming of a society that is finally beginning to recognize and celebrate their true essence. Their audacity, inner strength, and gentle power are testament to a world gradually awakening to the true value of diversity and feminine energy.

Through my lens, I strive to capture this delicate dance between strength and softness, to exalt the indomitable spirit of these exceptional women. In each image, I endeavor to reveal the subtle harmony between their inner world and the wild landscapes that surround them. My aim is to honor the profound and mysterious beauty that emerges when we fully embrace our authentic nature.

My photographs seek to immortalize this fusion between the human and the natural, highlighting the splendor that resides in the contrasts and hidden harmonies of life. Each portrait is a window into a waking dream, where past and present intertwine, where softness meets brutality, and where melancholy transforms into magnificence. Through my gaze, I invite you to discover this hidden beauty in the interstices of human duality.

Each droplet that glides over the skin tells a unique story

Quelques mots sur Eau Secours

EAU SECOURS

Water, cradle of life and the original mirror of humanity, reveals its poetry in Arnaud Baumann’s “Eau Secours” collection. Each droplet that glides over the skin tells a unique story, captured with sensitivity by the renowned photographer.

In this artistic exploration, Baumann invites us to introspect our connection with water and nature. These analog prints highlight detail, expression, and emotion. Under the shower, a moment of vulnerability and sincerity, faces reveal themselves, personalities emerge, and stories are whispered silently. This intimate contact with water evokes a range of reactions, from surprise to meditation, ecstasy to melancholy.

More than simple photographs, these images are artworks, signed and numbered by the artist. With his documentarian’s eye and humanist heart, Arnaud Baumann captures fleeting moments of truth. His models, whether artists, writers, scientists, or unknown individuals, share a part of their intimacy, offering a kaleidoscope of society in search of existential answers.

The high-quality prints on metallic paper, where water appears like pearls or precious crystal shards, captivate the eye and invite contemplation.

Each portrait is an invitation to reconnect with the very essence of life.

Self Oblivion

Self Oblivion

by Clara Diebler

"See the world, forget yourself"

A Few Words About Self Oblivion

Self Oblivion speaks of inner visions, of observation that are not biased by the gaze of others.

This project invites us to forget ourselves and see how the world is. A world where everything isconnected.

It is also a meditation, a few moments stolen from time and space where clouds pass through our entire soul.

Self Oblivion is the world piercing us. The world that calls to us and cries out, “We are one!”

The melancholy associated with it is only the memory of what we have loved.

The black and white film and the double exposure allow a dreamlike entry through the softness of the emulsion and the nostalgic side that emerges from it.

Little Black Book

Little Black Book

by Arnaud Baumann

A raw journey through the quest for freedom

A Few Words About Little Black Book

LITTLE BLACK BOOK

Photography, like all art forms, is a quest for something. For oneself? For truth?
For provocation?

Twenty-five years ago, the liberated post-’68 generation could enjoy many pleasures without too much fear of unemployment, not yet of AIDS, and less than today of ideological and religious extremism.

In the ’80s, the imminent fall of the Berlin Wall and a Europe on the move would abolish some of the borders and archaic miseries that had been set up between peoples… We lived in the hope of a better world. A freer world.

My thirst for freedom, combined with a search for identity, led me to have my friends and acquaintances pose for me in the simplest of poses, detached from any aesthetic considerations.
“Little Black Book” (published by DTV), a collection of nude portraits of famous and unknown people, proclaimed the truth of the gaze, without complexes or complacency.

At a time when European agreement is struggling to survive, other threats, climatic or conflictual, are darkening the horizon.

Added to this is the return of the narrow morality of our elders.

My ever-vital quest for truth leads me to risk shock by showing this personal, unbridled but assumed work, the uncompromising work of my early years as a photographer.

Virtual Street Art

The paradox of nudity and its censorship.

A few words about Virtual Street Art

The paradox of nudity and its censorship.

Idan Wizen’s “Virtual Street Art” collection boldly merges urban architecture with raw humanity. In this innovative series, Wizen superimposes nude bodies from his Purity collection of the “Un Anonyme Nu Dans Le Salon” project onto architectural shots of cities, integrating these human forms onto building facades as if they were street art murals.

These digital artworks, which blend the rigidity of urban structures with the vulnerability of the flesh, invite a critical reflection on the visibility of nudity in public spaces. They highlight a stark contrast with the trivialization of violence and weapons, shedding light on how society prioritizes and reacts to different forms of representation.

“Virtual Street Art” is not just a tribute to the beauty of the human body; it is also a provocative commentary on the social and cultural norms that govern our perception of what is acceptable and what is not. By placing nudity at the heart of streets, Wizen challenges taboos and sparks a necessary dialogue on freedom of expression and the boundaries of censorship in art and public life.

Explore this collection, where each image is an invitation to question the codes of our society and to reassess our comfort with nudity, so vividly contrasted against the everyday symbols of conflict and confrontation.

Figures

By Manon Deck-Sablon

The inherent beauty in our symbiotic relationship with nature

Figures

The “Figures” collection, envisioned by the talented French photographer Manon Deck-Sablon, stands as a remarkable artistic quest to blur the lines between the human body and the environmental setting it occupies. By intentionally choosing naked, anonymized subjects free from any sexual or identity attributions, Deck-Sablon turns these bodies into foundational elements of a larger canvas, skillfully playing with the dynamics of presence and absence, of occupied space and void. These models, through their mere presence in the work, transcend their personal individuality to meld into geometric compositions where the dialogue between the physical and the spatial achieves a profound and captivating visual resonance.

Beyond merely celebrating nudity in its most stripped-down form, “Figures” engages the viewer in a deep introspection on the intrinsic relationship between the self and the space it inhabits. Through her lens, Manon Deck-Sablon prompts us to rethink our understanding of the environment, whether natural or constructed, orchestrating a visual symphony where the strange meets the familiar, where harmony springs from the unexpected. This series is not just an exploration of the human form but also a meditation on our integration and interaction with the world around us. “Figures” invites us to a reevaluation of our perception of space and landscape, offering a harmonious fusion between the abstract and the tangible, between chaos and order, thus awakening a new awareness of the inherent beauty in our symbiotic relationship with nature.

The interaction between the Human body and the world that surrounds it

The Shape of Things

“The Shape of Things” collection by French photographer Manon Deck-Sablon is a bold exploration of the relationship between the human body and its surroundings. Leveraging the skills and sensitivity gained from her education in architecture and landscape, Deck-Sablon crafts scenes where nude, anonymous bodies devoid of any specific sexualization or gender interact with their environment in absurd and poetic ways.

In this series, the models transcend their personal identity to become abstract and disjointed forms. They blend into architectural or natural landscapes, altering the conventional perception of these spaces. The human presence, thus staged, prompts a reflection on our relationship with an environment sometimes perceived as hostile or alien. Paradoxically, these nude bodies and unusual spatial interactions enable a reclamation of urban and natural space, offering new perspectives and breathing life and meaning back into the environment.

“The Shape of Things” invites viewers to ponder on humanity’s place within its milieu and how our presence alters and is altered by the spaces we inhabit. Through her works, Manon Deck-Sablon challenges the boundaries between artifice and nature, the constructed and the innate, unveiling underlying beauty in the simplicity of forms and interactions.

Already acknowledged for her innovative approach, Manon Deck-Sablon has showcased her work in collective and individual exhibitions, as well as various art and architecture publications. Compared to artist Spencer Tunick for her management of bodies in space, Deck-Sablon distinguishes herself through a preference for geometric compositions involving a limited number of models, thus enhancing the impact of each body on the surrounding space.

“The Shape of Things” celebrates the interplay between the human body and the world around it, revealing the power of bodily expression in redefining our relationship with the environment. It is an invitation to contemplate and rethink the dynamics between humans and space, between abstraction and materiality, between chaos and order.
