Aurely Cerise (@aurelycerise
) chases rainbows of color, and she describes her photography as “fresh” and smile-inducing. “My friends say my art brings happiness,” says the Paris Instagrammer. With color being her creative trigger, Aurely looks at everyday objects and naturally starts composing still life scenes. Whether it’s masking tape, pencils or a cup of coffee, Aurely enjoys arranging random things and capturing them from particular perspectives. “It’s funny to see how many things could be really beautiful when you only change your point of view,” she says. Organizing also helps to overcome her natural anxiety. “When I create a set-up it allows me to channel my stress.”
When Aurely is not out and about capturing colorful sceneries, she lets her creative juices flow in front of a canvas. “This photo
explains how i imagine creation. Nothing is planned, the feelings are getting out from my brush and start creating forms.” Her simple advice for finding joy: “Put some color in your life.”
Overgrowth is a collaborative artistic project created by Parker Fitzgerald – the guy that takes most of the photos for Kinfolk magazine and Riley Messina – the gal that, if I’m not mistaken, did lots of the floral styling for this year’s Spring issue of Kinfolk, the one with the ice cream and flowers that made us go all gaga.
I’m totally going to be honest with you, I feel the concept of florals + faces is a wee overdone at this point, BUT the execution of this portraits (shot with film nonetheless) is beautiful. The floral design is just as awesome and works perfect with the models and the background. It’s whimsy (in the good sense) and somewhat creepy and dark at the same time – hence the feature on today’s post.
And even though it’s fall and there are hardly any wild flowers left, we can still enjoy a good ol’ session of floral design. In the face. Just the way we like it, right?
