What happens to childhood innocence?

Alexandra is a regular in front of Remi Rebillard‘s lens – a muse, you might say. Fascinated by the fleeting magic of youth, Rebillard often captures her doll-like and innocent qualities in his photo stories. But the question must inevitably arise: what happens to childhood innocence? Taking the title Dénaturation de l’enfance (Denaturation of childhood) his new series of portraits of the young Alexandra have…

I speak of a time… Memories of old romance.

Love can sour, or burn out, or fade away; but the memory of a fleeting romance is frozen in a better place. Instead of being allowed the time to suffer the highs and lows of life’s inevitable rollar-coaster, the love that has to part when at its sweetest can always leave one wondering at what might have been… and one can choose to imagine the…

Delisa by Remi Rebillard

A photographer’s trademark often forms in their photography techniques: whether they shoot in black and white, whether their photos are displayed in saturated colour or washed out vintage finishes. Or, they might make particular angles and framings their trademark much like an auteur of film direction does. Remi Rebillard‘s trademarks show up again in his latest work, a naked portrait of model Delisa. Voyeuristic shots…

Solitude by the sea

The sad irony of the digital age: often the more friends we have, the more isolated we become. Of course the definition of “friends” here are the kind that are collected not formed, branched out into sprawling online networks that lose any sense of intimacy. Studies have made much of how anti-social our social networks can actually be. Youth in particular can be isolating at…

Life creeps in to the abandoned factory

An abandoned factory in Brussels. There couldn’t be a more perfect location for photographer Remi Rebillard to ply his craft, Rebillard’s work often gravitating towards the fractured, the fragmented. For his latest work Rebillard contrasted the age and decay of the location – which has been abandoned for nearly 50 years – with the freshness and perfection of youth. Models Lola and Eva Michal stand…

The sisters by Remi Rebillard

Many of fashion’s most prolific photographers turn out work that spans a spectrum of styles – all depending on what the job is and what’s required of them at the time. That shows versatility and a particular type of skill. On the other end of the scale are those who develop trademarks, that nudge towards the label of auteurs or carve out a distinct style…

Scars and suspenders: les dessous chics

Les Dessous Chics is the title of Remi Rebillard‘s latest shoot, with reference to Serge Gainsbourg’s bittersweet song of the same name. Only Gainsbourg could sing about silk stockings and suspenders, beautiful dresses and undergarments, with such a sense of heartbreak. You might interpret it to be a song about separation, about the delicate garments as masks that hide emotional scars. The mood of Remi’s…

Mirrored between desire and suspicion

Reflections are a recurrent theme in Remi Rebillard‘s work. A model mirrored in glass, in a pool of water, in some surface in which she doesn’t so much admire or check herself as question her identity. This is part of the reason that Remi’s subjects, beautiful as they are, feel less like fashion models and more like people. They’re not there necessarily to make us…

Haunted, but not uncanny: living doll makeup you can wear

14 year old model Alexandra could easily be mistaken for a living doll. Her eyes and wide and round, her cheeks gently smattered with freckles. It’s no wonder that photographer Remi Rebillard chose to cast her in a haunted dream world where dolls and humans are one and the same come night fall. Marianne Tamposi created the hair and makeup looks that transform living skin…

Let me take you down

Hippie fashion is inextricably tied to the guitar strums and sitar hums, the colourful and drug-affected lyrics, the notes piercing the summer air – the music, more broadly speaking, of a generation. Looking back, our view of the hippie movement is shaped by both the free loving peaceful sentiments and the music and clothing they inspired. Remi Rebillard‘s hippie-themed shoot is therefor suitably a reflection…
