Sleep Elevations by Maia Flore


Maia Flore is a Parisiam artist. Her photography is inspired by what she perceives as the boundaries between reality and unreality. One way to challenge the mundane everyday is to reveal surprises within it, says Flore. Her subjects are young women being levitated by objects.

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night - Edgar Allan Poe.


This is how these girls, carried away in the air by objects, let themselves travel through boundless landscapes. Flying towards dreamed lands, making real a complete attraction between the character, his ideal universe and the world they live in: that is where these girls lead us. Their contorted movements are merging with the shape of the one revealing their passion. Mix of an imaginary realism and childhood memories, these beings in levitation invite us to dream, limitlessly.
