French artist Maia Flore in a cool series entitled “Sleep Elevations”. A very feminine, surreal, sort of romantic artwork. Her subjects are young women being levitated by objects. Flore wishes to emphasize the attraction the girls feel towards their new, boundless surrounding, and the lightness of the reality they are entering into. Their contorted movements is meant to articulate a contrast between physical limitation and the limitlessness of imagination.
Maia Flore was born in 1988 and educated at l’Ecole des Gobelins, Paris. Her photography is inspired by what she perceives as the boundaries between reality and unreality. One way to challenge the mundane everyday is to reveal surprises within it, says Flore.
