Madame Peripetie’s recently published book Dream Sequence has been awarded 1st place in the IPA (International Photography Awards) 2014 Fine Art Book category.
‘Dream Sequence oscillates around the portraiture of unconventional fictional figures seen at the crossroads between fashion, photography, performance and art.
In doing so, the main inspiration has evolved from the consideration of surrealism and film, specifically referencing Alfred Hitchcock’s – “Spellbound” dream scenes; the artificiality and hyper-realism of Hiroshi Sugimoto’s wax sculptures while considering the philosophical concept of the beautiful and sublime.
All the protagonists were shot in-camera with minimal (that is, only essential) retouching involved. As part of this in
camera process, body painting, prosthetics, wigs, unusual 3D make-up techniques as well as real flowers were used in order to enhance and distort the bodies of the models.’
Congratulation Madame Peripetie!
