We are two photographers: Isabelle Chapuis combines art and fashion, Alexis Pichot is a light painter artist.
After the meeting of our two worlds, this series entitled ‘Blossom’ evokes a journey of fantasy; for it we set off colored smoke bombs in emotionally-charged backdrops found throughout our travels.
The project originates from our participation in the Speak Focus photographic competition themed, ‘Paris, I love you’. We chose to depict love by using a red smoke bomb in the streets of Paris, and were awarded second prize. From that day on, we continue to perform as we move onwards.
We read in the smoke, as we guess in the clouds, forms of the imagination; ghostly presence that has been or will be: everyone is free to see what they like.

COLLABORATION WITH HOLZWEILER
For its new spring / summer collection, the Norwegian brand Holzweiler used 7 images of our Blossom series. These are printed on beautiful textiles, which gave life to different clothes: scarves, blouses, skirts, sweaters... creating original pieces with an abstract and colorful atmosphere.
Thursday, October 30, we have participated in the official presentation of the collection to the press in Oslo. At this occasion the show room has been dressed in colorful clouds with an exhibition of our photographs and a pyrotechnic happening.
