Paired Photographic Images by William Farges _( nudity)
Words from French photographer William Farges: “I did this work on the suggestion. My goal was to inspire me photographic style nude, while trying to renew. I first decided to focus on off-field taking part, not as the end of the picture, but as the beginning of the spectator’s imagination. Then, the more I walked this path, the more I had the urge to go further and create unreal body, chimeras bringing us to a state of conscious animal, contradictory and tortured. While on a work being polysemic, everyone sees what he wants. However, my intention is not to cultivate individual fantasies, but a reflection on the relationship between body and mind. The strength of my work is I think in its suggestive appearance. Indeed, by combining two images taken at two different times and without artifice, without editing, the viewer unconsciously accepts it and sees my body perception.”
A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
