This work is a research about ornamentation. It evolves around notions such as beauty, seduction and the sacred. Through traveling, it gathers portraits, nature and places, tradition and modernity in order to create a link between theses notions, and develop a colorfull, sensual universe.
These photographs are a way of questioning our relationship to ornament, celebration and spirituality, wether in moments of festivities or intimacy.
As if to say that the quest for Beauty has remained intact, nostalgic for a dimension formerly religious or warlike. It is a question here of finding clues in the everyday life.
A haircut, a mask, a camel, are collected in the same corpus, poetical and colored, which is situated between fantasy and reality.
«...the ornament is also peculiar to Man, his way to participate in the creation of the world and to testify, by the spending, of his gratitude...» Jacques Soulillou, Le livre de l’ornement et de la guerre, Marseille, Editions Parenthèses, 2003
