Alain Cornu's conceptual still life photography captures a number of random objects including freshly baked desserts and women's shoes. In addition to his stark images of plastic cups and spoons that are lined up in repetitive sequences, the French photographer also experiments with stiletto heels and even plastic models of the human brain.

The result is a whimsical series of mesmerizing portraits. Each Alain Cornu masterpiece is precisely arranged and is the epitome of symmetry. Titled "The Rehearsal," the photographer's series is a social commentary on society's habit of conforming to traditional lifestyles, social standards and even stereotypes.

Despite seeming random at first, these photographs are intricately planned and comment on a deeper topic that many viewers can relate to.
