Surreal Portraits Where Our Dreams Are Visible
As the famous photographer Elliot Erwitt once pointed out: “Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” And as you’ll see from these pictures, the photographer Anaïs Faubert and photo editor Geneviève Bellehumeur looked long and hard at their models until the dreams of their subjects revealed themselves for the camera.
Inspired by Renaissance hairstyles, the artists have decided to join forces for the project: “We wanted to combine our strengths, both in photography and photo editing, to go beyond the flat reality of portraits and rather show a glimpse of the rich inner selves of our subjects,” the artists told Bored Panda. “The project presents nine portraits, nine subjects, each dwelling in their own imaginary landscapes, much larger than their individual reality.“
