Publisher's Description
Thwarting the traps of esthetism and insipidness, these images are more probable than reasonable, are to be read as one turns the page of an album of hidden memories which conceal the scars of time in the fugacious joys and carefree frolicking of the moment. In addition to its immediate capacity of seduction, Armyde Peigner's photography affirms its singularity both by the subject, and by the manner treatened of it. However, the artist turns her camera towards her children and nature, two usual if not recurring topics of the medium. But her photographs use such a precise scene setting that the glance is immediately touched and incidentally raises the question of the spontaneity.

Is this because she knows that the wolf is not there that Armyde Peigner so readily lets her children play in the parks, the forests and woods? Hence the strange charm, almost a perverse bit which comes out of these enigmatic scenes, kind of lucid and spontaneous rebuses.

Working at the edge of reality, Armyde Peigner works out with grace and smoothness a poetic and mental world, affectionate and wild, between wonders and invisible threats, where the children invent their games in complicity with the very sap of the fairy tales.
