Eloïse Labarbe-Lafon’s work is an array of memories, tales, and dreams captured on black and white film and colored by hand. The paint applied with a brush, as well as with fingers, reveals imperfections, smudges, fingerprints. The mixing of mediums produces a disturbance and provokes the passage from the multiple image to a unique work.
The reality captured by the lens becomes fiction through colorization with dreamlike tones. The bodies stroll in spaces of solitude and silence.
Album, the first book of the artist is built like a photo album, the photographs are mixed, their association creates memories, and brings us in a nostalgic and melancholic world. The book gathers more than 80 photographs taken over the years in France, Greece, Japan and Mexico.
