charles pétillon


Oui, oui, a thousand times oui! These balloon-filled interventions are the work of Paris based photographer Charles Pétillon. These perfect white balloons, bubbling out of basketball hoops and old houses are all part of this beautiful series, titled “Invasions”:

“These balloon invasions are metaphors. Their goal is to change the way in which we see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them. It is our way of looking at things that I am trying to transform and revive, and therefore make it possible to go beyond practical perception to aesthetic experience: a visual emotion. Each balloon has its own dimensions and yet is part of a giant but fragile composition. This fragility is represented by contrasting materials and also the whiteness of the balloons.”

… ‘a giant but fragile composition’. Sigh. Beautiful.

    Today i’m not jealous. It’s hard to be anything but joyous when you’re eating ice cream and looking at true balloon art
