Here’s the base of my Seijinshiki series

Seijinshiki1test

成人式 I photographed this in January in Osaka, Japan. But the second step of this project has been to create an artificial background to the 12 selected portraits. It’s like if each of the young women would have been photographed in a studio, with one of these painted background. These images will be presented soon in Osaka and also in Brussel, at the Brussel Art fair, as a one man show. But what you see, finally, is not the definitive image. Each image is also the base of a collage. It’s the first time, I work like this, and it’s been a complete different organization, with a close collaboration with two graphic designers. Soon, the complete series will be online, with its collage.
