French photographer Blaise Arnold directed a series of cinematographic portraits, to tell stories and imagine characters : Stories. On the foreground, an imaginary or existant character. On the background, as storytelling that the viewer has to guess through certain clues (like an enigma).
He explains : “These are portraits of the past made on the present time. Sometimes simple viewer, sometimes complice, the reader is an actor of the story. We can feel empathy, disgust or admiration for one character”. One thing is sure, it’s that Blaise took care about corresponding brilliantly the temporal coherence and the possibility of the action.
