Jean-Marc GODÈS

Jean-Marc GODÈS photographic works are comparable to theatrical productions – with furnishings, human and animal actors, costumes, rehearsal, technical assistants … The project begins as ideas on paper which then pass through several stages – constituting the team, casting, locating the perfect spot, creating the set, dressing, make-up, lights, and rehearsals – until the final shot is taken. Despite the surreal aspect of some of those pictures, there is no computer editing involved. The image leads us to a world that exist somewhere between the real and the imaginary, where the books are omnipresent.
