WE ARE NOTHING BUT TOYS
April 2011. The current situation ( political crisis in Côte d'ivoire) forces me to stay home. I can not go out with my camera because there are roadblocks everywhere. I am now working only in the studio. These sad events have inspired this series of photographs portraits of old toys, figurines and dolls owned by my children. Using a macro lens and colorful minimalist stage, the project "We are nothing but toys" depicts the fears, but also the hopes, confusion, facing war and pitiless folly that upsets our world today. The concept of balance of power, submission/domination, impotence, sadness can be found in this series.
