Natural, without complaisance, a heroine, conquering version, dreams of a masterly brush stroke, story to finish in beauty.
Games of colours, aesthetic choices initiating a return of the sap and feelings. Thus the cycle of time is revived through the image of a universal feminine creature where the expression reveals all kinds of facets and emotional subjectivities. The stagings experienced as narrative snapshots in the sense that we systematically perceive a before and after. But it is the story of beauty and fashion that plays an eternal renewal here. Each season is a tribute to those who preceded it. As a result, everything unfolds in style marked, unique, dreamlike, magical, extravagant, and romantic organised to the millimetre. It’s merely a desire for foliage, all in all, what to expect from warmer weather.
Jennifer Orhélys also seems to have found a delicate way of exposing her relationship to nature in grandiose landscapes. By the emotion that carries her, Jennifer creates an imaginary world, coloured and with the subtle messages, of solitary heroines. Because she grew up in a picturesque environment with mountains, trees and fields; The result is a force common to all his images, even if at times they may seem to overlap between peace and wild melancholy.
Orhélys’ exceptional self-portraits explore subjects as diverse as romance, fairy tales, surrealism, hyper-femininity, the universe, the stars and the beauty of nature in her dramatic photographic works that lead to reflection.
Using images is my way of communicating with people. As a photographer interested in nature, society and beauty, I seek to engage my audience in the continuous and meaningful dialogue on these crucial topics. As strong and aesthetic as I can do, my photography is never imagery in itself. The eye is a part of the brain with its function of memory and consciousness of the mind. Photography makes it accessible to others; This is how I conceive of my work and my vocation in life.
