Entry Description: These are portraits of hunters posing with their taxidermised trophies on the spot where the hunt has gone.
In order to accentuate a solemnity of the atmosphear, I worked with a photographic technical chamber coupled with flashes and asked the models to wear their most elegant clothes. The absence of rifle focuses attention on the mimicry between the predator and its prey. The reference to contrario of photographs of persons posing in costume in front of painted landscapes in the studios of 19th-20th century is also an element of the approach .
