Book Apparitions - Bessard Editions

In Apparitions, Marjolaine Vuarnesson reveals an intimate story by mixing Polaroid negatives and color images. From the prince charming dreamed of by the teenager to the romantic relationships of the adult, she confides to us her reflections and her desires through metaphors, in which the imaginary and the real intersect.
First attracted by painting and sculpture, Marjolaine then turned to photography to continue her plastic exploration, letting herself be carried away by the vagaries of chemistry. “My approach is in perpetual evolution, from the manipulation of the Polaroid to the photogram through the color silver print. I like the idea of ​​mastering the process from start to finish,” she says.
Apparitions is a series born in 2019 following its participation in the Milk Masterclass hosted by Ljubisa Danilovic and Sabrina Biancuzzi, then finalized in 2020 with the help of Julien Magre for Editing.
“Appearances, that’s my story. That of a woman who still dreams of the ideal love…”
She invites us on a dreamlike journey to tell us about her vision of love, oscillating between a young girl's dream and reality. In his images, the bodies become sensual, the human curves follow those of the elements of the decor. The faces appear very little, like ghostly echoes. An introspective reflection translated into an image.
The book is made up of 72 pages, in Japanese binding.
