Philippe Ramette

French artist Philippe Ramette’s photographs make a seemingly unrational situation, rational. Originally trained as a sculptor, the gravity defying situations are entirely un-photoshopped, rather he goes to extraordinary lengths to create set-ups, metal support systems, and tethers to suspend him within each of his portraits. As you examine the imagery closer you are able to notice the discrepancies, “you see a tension in my hands, my red face is far from serene as the blood rushes to it, my suit is ruffled.” Each image is an exact replication of one of his drawings and conceived through a dream.
