Karen Knorr, Fables

From to

La Centrale Electrique

As part of the Summer of photography 2008

Karen Knorr, photographer, takes us into her poetic, strange and mysterious world. Her photographic mises en scène are undeniably evocative of paintings of the magnificent heritage sites that she chooses for placing a stuffed animal here, a languid beauty there.

It’s difficult to resist the pleasure of letting yourself be swept away into this very personal parallel world, yet one in which the backdrops are very familiar to us: the Musée d’Orsay, the Musée Carnavalet, the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (museum of hunting and nature) in Paris, Château de Chambord, Château de Chantilly, and more.

These dazzling fables must be seen during the Summer of photography 2008.
