Fairy tale nature
juxtapositions of landscapes
OHKUCHI & GONZALEZ
The artist Ohkuchi uses macro photography, a technique that immerses you in a larger-than-life environment. With the objective of immortalizing the imaginary world of his childhood, he captures the world through the eyes of a tiny creature. The unique and colourful result allows viewers to discover a whole new world.
"One day I would like to take pictures of miniature worlds in countries all over the world. I'm sure each country has its own characteristics in the miniature world too."
LUIS MARIANO GONZALEZ
Luis Mariano Gonzalez is very involved in photography: he takes photos, organizes exhibitions and remains very active within photo networks on the internet.
In parallel with his work in the world of cinema, he does macro photography work, favoring nature and landscapes. The Spanish artist thus diverts the plant shapes and colors from their initial environment to achieve a new and mysterious subjectivity.
AVA & K
K is a French visual artist. In her portraits or landscapes, she challenges the norms and does not hesitate to mix disciplines. In opposition to digital retouching, she gives her works the spontaneity of craftsmanship. She embellishes her photographs with textures, paint, markers, felt pens, cut-outs, to create a new form of augmented image. In constant collaboration with many photographers, she never ceases to propose new unique compositions embellished with her colourful style. In this series, she collaborates with Ava. At the crossroads of the plastic and digital arts, this original collaboration is at the origin of a series of original and explosive works.

IN THE SAME UNIVERSE....
Bernhard Hartmann started his career at the age of 18. He became a landscape photographer using his parents' Polaroid camera. He creates dramatic and cinemascopic images. He prefers to photograph places where the arts are practiced and expressed and thus presents series on opera houses, theaters, libraries and other historical public spaces.
