French photographer Cécilia Poupon has freshly graduated from ECAL, Lausanne, with a portfolio displaying her interest “in digital fragmentation, layers and surfaces”.
Photographers are continuously praised for their ability to capture elements of life others just pass by, elevating everyday beauty. This is a talent, while still at a young age, that Cécilia has really accomplished. Whether it be the shadow of a desk chair in an office’s frosted window, or battered blinds that bounce the camera’s flash in its misshapen dents, the photographer’s images flit between seeming real and orchestrated. One particular image of Cécilia’s, an up close photograph of a subjects eye taken from the top of the head so it appears flat, is a delicately eerie interpretation.
“Recently, I used photography as a way of dissecting sociologic phenomenon structures, like modern society individuality, in my diploma work Another Hydra,” Cécilia explains. The photographs featured in her graduating series uses items such as plastic, ice or glass in unfamiliar circumstances but in their unusual placement, each image connects to the next.
