Head Over Heels by Patrice Letarnec
- Esther Jablotschkin
Patrice Letarnec is a photographer and art director based in France, who took the ‘head over heels’ saying literally by capturing some strange upside down wanderings in the streets of Paris. Obviously the French photographer likes to play with the forces of gravity and the expectations of his audience. Due to the right way up clothing of his models the eye feels tricked when it recognizes that the expected arms are legs and legs are arms, actually. With his series Patrice Letarnec created something to chuckle about, but at the same time has an artistic value, for his photographies also can carry a deeper meaning.
