Alexis Pichot (b. 1980) worked as an interior designer in Paris for more than 10 years, during which he became sensitive to the use and manipulation of space within urban parameters. Since then, the artist has moved his attention away from the bustle of the city and into the welcoming mystery of the landscape. Marche Céleste was shot in the forest of Fontainebleau, France. Deeply mystical and ritualistic, the images offer a sense of regeneration through depictions of the organic world. The intimate photographs re-establish the supremacy of nature as a powerful and innate force. As such, the following pages are part of a wider awakening of dormant human emotions; each nocturnal scene encourages the viewer to reconnect with the earth’s allure. Drawing inspiration from lunar cycles and astrological phenomena, the compositions reacquaint audiences with the environment, just like eyes becoming reaccustomed to darkness. www.alexispichot.com.
