Aude by Jeremy Ayer
- Caroline Kurze
Photographer Jeremy Ayer and graphic designer Julien Mercier have been collaborating on the serie ‘Aude’, a photographic project which tails the story of a young woman wandering in a mansion. With here pale skin, her slender body, she represents a certain ideology of beauty. But paradoxically, the raw image remains in a direct visual language, not constrained by any commercial obligations. There is no digital manipulation which would withdraw all of her natural eroticism. In the same process, the statues with their perfectly carved silhouettes, oppose with her curves left intact. The brutal and frontal lighting, exposes here entire body. But always fleeting, she remains inaccessible to the viewer, out of reach, in height.
