Les Magiciens, Act I (so far)
I’ve been working on a portrait series for the last year and thought now is a good time to share the portraits made so far with you.
Les Magiciens started a few years ago as a facebook page for my male photography work. I wanted a platform where I could share my creative work and where it would live on its own, independent from my professional photography facebook page. For years it was simply a page where I shared works I’ve done with male models, often exploration and tests for future creative projects. One of these tests was the first shot from Act I, called « Christopher ». I decided to use a projector and let him react to the light.
With one little exception, the process for making every image following this first experience remained the same; use a projector on someone I meet for the first time and try to illustrate my impression of them with the images used. Here are the portraits done so far.
