💃🏻 Les Indes Galantes 💃🏻 maybe you spotted these in Paris or Brussels: my photo “Protest Abstract” from #intheshadowofthepyramids is the main campaign image of Les Indes Galantes, premiering in Paris’ Opera Bastille on September 26th. If you see one, pls send me a photo! I’d love to see it for myself! Big thanks to Lisa Bruyneel and @neutralgreyphoto2018 / Photos © Lisa Bruyneel
Book making has become an essential part of my work. I love books as an object of art - a tactile slice of time & memory. Making books has been an exciting way for me to explore my interests outside photography. It’s easy to forget sometimes that we are multidimensional when we are so focused on one element of what makes us who we are. One of the highlights of making a book is the collaborative effort behind it. It takes true team effort. For me it’s also about family and inspiration. I’m so grateful to have been able to bring my love for artistic expression & the inspiration behind it (my mother) together. We worked for nearly two months on these Batik pouches inspired by the images in A Star in the Sea. Which one will be yours?

A look inside 🌟A Star in the Sea🌟 Available now through the link in my bio. Thankful for the wonderful, creative, patient team who managed to make this a reality for me @syb300961 @colourandbooks @fopmawier & for the opportunity to once again collaborate with my mother @nadia_elhusseiny to create something special - in this case unique handmade Batik pouches for each book. I feel grateful & proud. Always with 💕 #ALaborofLove #bookart #selfpublishing #thankful #sealthedeal #UniversehasitsWay
*New Book Release 🌟 A Star in the Sea* Available for pre-order now |||| A Star in the Sea is an overture for embracing the unexpected. The photographs, text & title pertain to three independent, personal life events: A love story; my first & only trip to my place of birth in the UK & a vision on a beach in Italy. It is inspired by a desire to redefine my relationship with the ideals of success & happiness. In this context, A Star in the Sea is an opportunity to celebrate imperfection — an artistic gesture to have faith in the Universe.
The book is conceived as an artistic object demanding intimacy — something you want to protect & treat with care. Each book comes in a custom handmade Batik pouch. A collectible edition of 26 Batik fabric bound box sets, each including a copy of the book & one of the original 26 polaroids from the series will subsequently be released in late June 2019.
