Aurélien Bigot & Richard Forestier Create Still Photographs That Look Like Impressionist Paintings


Photographer Richard Forestier collaborated with art director Aurélien Bigot to create a photo project titled “The Impressionist Experience”. The series tries to capture and turn real life into still images.


Bigot uses the key characteristics of famous painters: religious pose, nudity, antique drapery, etc. “If we recreate scenes with those elements and shoot them with this special technique that imitates the painting texture, we can bring together impressionist art and photography creating the first impressionist photographs. This will lead the observer to doubt, unsure if faced with a painting or not, eventually realizing that it is indeed an absolutely unedited photograph,” explains the artist.
