“Prabérians takes roots in a dialogue between my rural origins and my creative process as a photographer.
These images came out of a fantasy; that of a fictive rural community, lost in space and time, evolving in a dream-like French countryside. My photographs are not following a defined narration; every mise-en-scène rather tries to rebuild my memories of a rural world where the farmers’ routine is confronted with the most exotic archetypes of the peasant life.The real world is my inspiration. I make photographs with the inhabitants of my village and their animals and re-locate them in a floating reality that is timeless, unlikely and intriguing; a reality that is a blend of a raw normality and absurd exuberance.”

Really worth seeing!!!
