Gravity Defying Photography by Cerise Doucède
By using strings to suspend objects in midair, French photographer Cerise Doucède is able to create dream like images frozen in time. Finding inspiration in normal day to day tasks, the mundane nature of the scene is juxtaposed with the encapsulating fantasy world swirling around the subjects. Cerise also deliberately leaves the strings in shot and visible to the viewer, she does this to maintain a connection between reality and the surreal moments captured.
Including it’s use as a bomb shelter during WWII.
