Stéphane presents his work of photographic images stemming from association of the world of painting to the observation of our contemporary society. The result, voluntarily ambiguous, prompts the observer, the reader, to wonder about the meaning. It questions through juxtaposition or even paradox between gentleness and violence of a sad reality. From the Renaissance, from Romanticism to the details of our daily life, the compositions astonish through their style without obvious sexuality, through the calligraphy of bodies in space. Simple or precarious equilibriums, ephemeral moments and outdated values of a forgotten era, sensuality, he pays tribute to women too worn out by life.
