The Dark Universe of Laurence Demaison

August 01, 2012

Even in the darkest parts of our mind could we ever come up with the intriguing and wonderful photography of Laurence Demaison. The French photographer and fine artist combines black and white photos with his own drawing and effected layers on top of the image, adding a ghostly dimension to the finished product. As Lens Culture puts it, "her photographs seem to bend light and time, distort the appearance of her own human body, and hold secret coded messages in their multiple reflections, refractions, visual repetitions, and semaphore-like gestures that become smears of light in darkness."
