The series Le Rêve Rose stands for melancholy as the pastel and pink landscapes are an escape from a violent world, even when fully aware of the harsh reality. As in a lucid dream, whilst realizing that what you're seeing is part of your subconscious, Le Rêve Rose represents that breaking point. Will you choose to be part of a controlled mind's fantasy or are you ready to face reality?
The series Nausicaa was shot in Iceland to raise awareness of both the beauty and the vulnerability of mother nature. Glaciers are indicators of global warming and have reduced in size tremendously quick. In Iceland, most of the larger ones have retreated at an unprecedented speed, coinciding with the rising temperature in the northern hemisphere. Part of the proceeds from this series will be donated to The Icelandic Environment Association.
