i’m jealous of laurent chéhère

Gasp! I love these, very, very, very much. All of these dreamy images are from a series, titled “Flying Houses”, by French photographer Laurent Chéhère. {If you happened to be in Paris last fall, you might have seen them on display at Galerie Paris-Beijing – I wish I had been in Paris to see these last fall!} Laurent is an award-winning advertising photographer, who left it all behind to travel the world and pursue his personal work – pulling up roots, and flying off to see the world… hm.

    Love seeing these on your site! The flying tent & camper are my faves. Really inspired work.

    I found these the other day, too! They are amazing! Makes me want to float away.

    I enjoy the whimsy of these images, but there’s something more to them than just that. It’s going to take a little time to put thoughts into words, but I think there’s something about isolation, adventure, magic, and sadness in them.

    So lovely; I like that they are flying by the electrical wires. Thanks for sharing.

    Love how the work ranges from the mundane to colourful to decayed to chaos – amazing reintrepretation of the “mobile home” :) BTW looking forward to your panel at Alt Summit!
