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…

Sleepless beauty

Restless, sleepless, without company… The protagonist of Remi Rebillard‘s latest work – played by fresh face Elizabeth Ferrara Twaits – looks like she’s waiting for something, or someone, but in her late night solitude that company never comes. The hotel setting has the impersonal feeling of being away from home and away from familiarity, while the ghost effect hazing across the images gives them Rebillard’s…

Viewing dreams from afar

Remi Rebillard‘s shoots afflict what I can only describe as a creeping sense of voyeurism; but it’s an entirely different and indefinable kind to the physical, as if you’re peering not through a window but into someone else’s subconscious mind. And there you’re lingering in the blurred space where dreams bleed into memories and even the dreamer isn’t sure which is real anymore. Here’s another…

In search of lost time

“Like souls, ready to remind us, waiting and hoping for their moment, amid the ruins of all the rest; and bear unfaltering, in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence, the vast structure of recollection.” — Marcel Proust Remi Rebillard knows how much I love a story, and luckily for me he’s always willing to tell one – no matter how deep or…

Longing for the sea

When we view Remi Rebillard‘s subjects, it’s often from behind glass or through some other barrier. The effect is that we become a voyeur; or the subject becomes an object to be spectated. In this particular shoot the object is model Haley, a mermaid-like beauty. With her long, spiral curls, freckled skin, and classical figure – right down to the ghost of a sea-shell tattoo…

As time goes by

Clouds, an airport departures board, a car covered in autumn leaves. The latter is a visual representation of time passing, the others representations of movement and space. As always photographer Remi Rebillard has an almost eclectic mix of photos, but a strong theme as the tie that binds. Another from his archives, this shoot stars a young Malgosia Bela at the early days of her…

A snapshot of 1991

Sometimes the inspiration behind a fashion shoot is clear-cut. The line of a song, a scene from a film, a particularly enticing shade of a colour. Other times it’s a culmination of moods that whirl together into a snapshot of the zeitgeist. For Remi Rebillard this shoot was a melting pot of the events and moods of 1991. Photographed in March of that same year,…

My dinner with Helmut Newton

For photographer Remi Rebillard creating this shoot was more than just a creative process; it was a reminiscence. It was inspired by, Remi says, a dinner he had with supermodel Karen Mulder and her then-boyfriend at the Brasserie Lipp in Paris, 1996. Sitting next to them was famous photographer Helmut Newton and his wife June. Newton was, in Remi’s account, “shooting pictures of anything around…
