Stéphane Lallemand - Odalisques

Stéphane Lallemand is a French photographer born, like me, in 1958, and who is fascinated by female bodies and by classic painting. Here he mixed both in a series of "odalisques", recreating the paintings with his models. Not really mimicking the original work, although he respected almost all the details, he succeeds in giving birth to a feeling of proximity of the flesh and intimacy with the model. The first 2 ones were exposed in a an exhibition called "Ingres & the modern" in Ingres' museum of Montauban. See more of Stéphane Lallemand's work here. PS. Stéphane Lallemand is the man in the pictures.
