photography Daniel Dabriou Heads or Tails Being, showing, being perceived… In our world where the omnipresent image has become a vector of personality and synonymous with existence, I became interested in human nature. I, therefore, focused my gaze on appearance, the one that paces moods, opinions, life! A glance that moves between what we are, what we want to show, and what others perceive from what we succeed in showing. An image emerges at the frontier between struggle and equilibrium where the aesthetic becomes obstructed and the obstacle becomes aesthetic. In this world of appearance and showing off, the question that emerges is whether the greatest fear is not to show up just as we are. m Appearance 02 m Appearance 03 Appearance 01 m
