French photographer Laurence Demaison sometimes combines black and white photos with her own drawing, generating a ghostly finished product. "Taking full advantage of shwoing what the camera sees (sometimes over long periods of exposure) compared to what the human eye cannont or does not see, she pre-visualizes each photograph up to a certain degree, and then lets chance and intuitive performance intervene."

No Special Effects: Photography by Laurence Demaison

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
The photographic work of Laurence Demaison is exclusively constituted by self-portraits from 1993 to 2009. Since 2010 she occasionally uses mannequins or dolls. The used techniques - shot, development, print - are analogicals and realized by the author. No particular manipulation intervenes beyond the shot (except chemical inversion of films for some series).
