Imagine France Photo Exhibition by MAIA FLORE

In 2010, the light of Scandinavia inspired Maia Flore her first serie Sleep Elevations, a suspended journey melted with childhood memories. Her approach enters into the research of coincidences between reality and her imagination. A completly made up universe she relates in the shape of touching, captivating, strange and, sometimes, surrealistic pieces. She belongs to a new generation of photographers, 100% digital, where the picture is made as much as taken, where the postproduction helps the final results as much as the shot. As she takes a different look upon a country rich of its past, she empowers the places like a magician. Maia doesn’t simply visit, but meets the places. In the end, a communicative feeling of liberty makes visitors and spectators want to be part of this delighted circle. Martine Ravache Read More »
