« Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night”. By quoting Edgar Allan Poe to present her series “Sleep Elevation”, the photographer Maia Flore, member of the Vu’ Agency, lays her cards on the table. She could have as well quoted Lewis Carroll, as her images are infused with the same poetry and fantasy.
Graduated from the prestigious Gobelins School of Paris, she combines the art of photography with her editing abilities to create bridges between the real and the imaginary. Her soothing images of bodies floating in the air, like feathers, are leading us on the other side of the mirror.
This series is an exercise in style about the relationship between the body and nature, one of the main themes leading the Festival de la Gacilly since its beginning.
