Labokoff is a project born in 2007,when I began exploring interactions between photography and painting, the real world and imagination, memories and reality.

   My images are built around photographs that are picked out of my personal collection: landscapes, nature, silhouettes… These are individual memories but, through the choice of the photos , the way they are processed, and the minimalism of the resulting pictures, they become more universally evocative and can remind anyone of a memory, any place,an emotion…

   Painting is made of gouache or inks that are then digitally combined with photos, it shifts the images in to a dreamy register., brings vibrancy and add the strength of colors and shapes to raw photographs which helps me to create a poetic and subjective vision.

   These are dreamed images trying to recreate a momentary emotion that anyone can feel in front of nature’s beauty, a particular architectural shape, a landscape passing by or the silhouette of a beloved one.

   Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to contact me if you have any comment or question!
