Photography: Marie Rime’s stunning series of characters wearing board game masks

Swiss photographer Marie Rime is just about to graduate from her BA in photography at ECAL. In spite of her young age she’s managed to accrue an impressive body of fine art photography that experiments with unorthodox costumes crafted from everyday materials (in this case board game pieces). They concern themselves predominantly with the theme of power, exploring the role that armour and costumes play in the amplification of status in the perception of the viewer. As a result of this coherent and highly stylised portfolio, Marie has found herself shortlisted for this year’s Hyéres photography festival – which seems like an entirely deserved honour to us.
