MEET PIERRE BETEILLE’S PHOTOGRAPHY http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/meet-pierre-beteilles-photography/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/meet-pierre-beteilles-photography/#comments Thu, 01 Oct 2015 16:24:26 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=2311 Neither artist nor photographer, Pierre Beteille is better defined as a “photographiste” or “image maker”. He devotes himself to his two passions: photography and retouching. He is an artist, quite an unusual one, who manipulates photos and arrives at some extraordinary images.

His series of self-portraits met with great international success on the web. A mix of denunciation, humor and self-mockery. He never had read a book, watched a tutorial or taken a class on photo manipulation and he’s proud of it. His digital creations are highly original, each image functioning as both a punchline and an act of rebellion.

“For me, the humor is absolutely necessary to bear the world in which we live and to bear oneself. Humor is perhaps what is most lacking in the field of art where people are often desperately serious.”

“I do not think about my pictures in terms of photo montages. I first get an idea, then I try to visualize it. When the image is clear in my head, I search the best way to achieve it. If I have to make a photomontage, I do. But if I can avoid it, I prefer not to.”

“I deal with subjects that are important to me (like speculation, pollution, etc.), but I try to offer a vision that is not too personal. I try to be more distanced, more allusive, to allow more room for individual interpretation.” Pierre Beteille says about his work.

Suggestive Fashion Photography by FAKEDCANDID http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/suggestive-fashion-photography-by-fakedcandid/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/suggestive-fashion-photography-by-fakedcandid/#comments Thu, 04 Jun 2015 13:56:52 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=1378 A juxtaposition between spirit and matter, visual pleasure and practical assessment, business and aesthetics, this is the force that moves FAKEDCANDID, the Singapore based visual arts duo that takes pleasure in combining their different trainings and same instinctive interest in their work, to give birth to real, marketable art direction. XL and Donson, the two friends behind FAKEDCANDID, craft their inspiration through the looking glass of stylish mannerisms and a fashionable approach, as seen in the campaign they created for independent clothing label’s SOMEWHERE NOWHERE SS15 collection.

Suggestive Fashion Photography by FAKEDCANDID  Suggestive Fashion Photography by FAKEDCANDID 150

Paint Job, the brightly coloured canny vision that they dreamed up for the label, is full of innuendos, leaning on each side of tragedy and comedy where tools and objects hint at the presence of a painter, through implications of him suffocating, being squashed, or maybe wounded. Subtle clues and unsuspecting bright colours are masterfully placed, eager to either guide or mislead our imagination, depending on the angle in which we choose to look at FAKEDCANDID’s playful narration.

Meet The Team Behind Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Shoot http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/meet-the-team-behind-caitlyn-jenners-vanity-fair-shoot/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/meet-the-team-behind-caitlyn-jenners-vanity-fair-shoot/#comments Tue, 02 Jun 2015 13:34:22 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=770 The most talked about gender transformation in recent years has to be Bruce Jenner’s reveal as Caitlyn Jenner, one that we’ve eared about for a long time but somehow never took serious, not until yesterday.

Meet The Team Behind Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Shoot  Meet The Team Behind Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Shoot 1

Vanity Fair chose Caitlyn Jenner to be the cover for it’s July issue, this marks an important statement not only for the renowned magazine but also a land mark in pop culture or what we are used to calling mainstream. We are talking about one of the most important fashion and notoriety venues in publishing history choosing a transexual as its cover, a decision that we’re sure wasn’t easy to make but it’s bound to be a game changer. The photographer chosen for this special occasion is none other than Annie Leibovitz, one the most renowned in the business and ultimately, we dare to say it, one of the best fashion photographers in the world. She took on the incredibly hard task of making Bruce Jenner’s new persona look beyond good, Caitlyn Jenner actually looks amazing for a 65 year old man turned woman, but it’s also a shoot filled with truth, one of Leibovitz’s trademarks are the eyes of her subjects, they always stand out amidst the high production values.

Her makeup was done by Mark Carrasquillo, an industry veteran who frequently works with Vogue and Allure, and has done the makeup for Richard Chai, Hussein Chalayan, Etro, and more, and her hair was by Oribe, who has been a celebrity stylist (and a mastermind on dozens of Allure covers) for decades. Deborah Lippmann, another frequent Allure and Vogue contributor, painted Jenner’s nails a classic red.

Jenner tells Vanity Fair contributor Buzz Bissinger that “the uncomfortableness of being me never leaves all day long. I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live.” She reveals that while she is not going to have genital surgery, she did have facial feminization surgery, which took ten hours. Shortly afterward, she suffered her first panic attack and thought to herself, What did I just do? What did I just do to myself? A counselor from the Los Angeles Gender Center came to her home to calm her.

Jenner told Bissinger that she receives supportive letters every day from people all over the world. She’s also looking forward to experiencing life as a woman with other women and throwing “girls’ night” parties on a regular basis. “You can talk about anything you want to talk about. You can talk about outfits. You can talk about hair and makeup, anything you want,” says Jenner. “It becomes not a big deal.”

Hands and arms sprout out and protrude from mouths, eyes, necks and backs, interacting with the face and body they are each attached to. In some cases, a struggle appears to be taking place between the two parties; in other instances, the hand and fingers are merely an extension of the person, casually germinating from the subject’s forehead.

In their realization, the images required the interplay between staged photographic scenography, makeup, and post-production retouching in order to allow them a highly realistic quality.
