Ceci n'est pas une robe

The photo series 'Ceci n'est pas une robe' (English: 'This is not a dress') was shot in and around a historic corner building in the Sablon district of Brussels. The enormous window of the building, the special reflections of the surroundings and the dramatic lighting effects provided the ideal backdrop for a fashion shoot with contemporary designer clothing combining elements from Hitchock films with the work of the Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte. Just like the painting to which the title refers (La Trahison des images), the photo series endorses the message that the truthful representation of reality should not be an objective, not even for photography.
