My name is Amélie Berton, I am a French art lover, a self-taught photographer who resides in Brussels.
Through photo montage I present stories I imagined which illustrate moments in an timeless world and which are intended to evoke an emotion in the viewer.
Each of this surreal illustration is carefully planned and constructed.
I want to go beyond documentation of present, I rather seek to blur the difference between dream and reality and invite the viewer into my world of fantasy.
In my series Made of Mineral and Vegetal, I collaborated with a make-up artist to experiment body painting in my self-portrait. I added very simple props to this mineral some ivy and some ferns to add vegetal. In these photographs I wanted to express the tension in the uncertain coexistence between man and his natural environment. The delicate balance of nature is too often ignored and damaged.
