Reine Paradis constructs narrative photographs staging herself as the central figure in a surreal landscape. Paradis is dressed in orange in her images and is shown interacting in colour filled landscapes and as may thought mainly using IKB (International Klein Blue)
Shot in many locations throughout America, the photo series "Jungle" takes us on an introspective journey across a symbolic and chromatic world, projected above the limit of reality and imagination.
ll the scenes are imagined and conceptualised before shooting in real locations. Once the scene is visualised in it’s entirety, Paradis makes sketches and paints the scene to use as a blue print when photographing the final scene. All the costumes, accessories and origamis are meticulously designed and prepared according to the initial vision of the scene.
