Couleurs du Spectre.
Photographs by Camille Vivier.
Seems Books, 2010. 68 pp., Color illustrations throughout, 8½x11".
Couleurs du Spectre, contains a selection of photographs by Camille Vivier taken over the last ten years. They blend together classical pictorial subjects such as still life, nudes, and animals but with a distinct personal eye revealing a shadowy universe. Each photograph is theatrically staged employing props and the artifice of light to play with the formal beauty of the subject, while revealing a certain strangeness among the stillness. Vivier uses literature, cinema, and art history to reinterpret common cultural references and create a personal collection of curios and imagery of fantastic animals and characters. The film sequences are an extension of the photographic process and allow for further exploration of themes and imagery.
