“In 2007, Estelle Hanania went to a remote mountainous part of Switzerland to take ambiguous and challenging images of an actual Embodied Nature. For days, she tagged along a group of a dozen of men, wearing incredible suits, patiently handmade by them along the months before the event and the procession. She mingled with this plant-human crossover cortege and followed them on their customary walk from one barn to the next farm, singing and dancing to the point of exhaustion.
The photographer’s interest for folk cultures and customs is also an important part of her still-life work over the years.
Organic surfaces ready to absorb you, hybrid artifacts of worships and traditional rituals all report for lost civilizations and vanishing customs.”
