French Photographer | Born: 1988


From www.agencevu.com
Born in 1988 in France, Maia Flore graduated from Ecole des Gobelins in June 2010. During her last school year, she went to Sweden where she started personal works. Under the Scandinavian light her first work was born: Sleep Elevations. In 2011, she has joined Agence VU and had her first exhibitions, among which Rencontres d’Arles Festival.

Situations (2012)
In the Situations series, a girl runs through varyingly weathered landscapes donning a striking red outfit. In search of a sublime freedom, she travels to find fleeting moments of communion with nature. Draped in red, she catches the light of the sun or buries herself in the fog. As though she were attempting to rediscover this space, she roams on land-locked clouds that evaporate into the landscape upon the return of the sun as it chases away their mystery. Like a game between reality and fantasy, the clash between clairvoyance and a moment of madness, the girl is amused by her emotional confusion.

Sleep Elevation (2010)
“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night,” Edgar Allan Poe. This is how these girls, carried away in the air by objects, let themselves travel through boundless landscapes. Flying towards dreamed lands, making real a complete attraction between the character, his ideal universe and the world they live in: that is where these girls lead us. Their contorted movements are merging with the shape of the one revealing their passion. Mix of an imaginary realism and childhood memories, these beings in levitation invite us to dream, limitlessly.
