«Dolls» is a series of self-portraits encompassing a whimsical exploration of my subconscious. By the movement of the lens the superimposition happens in real time when I take the picture. My image is doubled.
And sometimes, between the two, a third is formed : the Doll.
As in a Freudian slip, these alter-egos arise from my face. Like buried memories coming out of the shadows, one by one the dolls reveal themselves. Whether fragile or provocative, the look in their eyes brings me back to a forgotten place.
I then playfully proceed colouring and shadowing the dolls as the only effect, leaving distortions and traces of movement unretouched, so a sort of organic mutation occurs on the surface of the image right before our eyes.
