This broken backdrop photography series uses non-traditional elements to reveal pieces from Christian Lacroix' latest lookbook. The images present a playful atmosphere where each subject is interacting with their backdrop.

In some images, the backdrops are covering the subjects' faces and in other images the backdrops are lying crumpled on the ground next to them. These scenes display a sense of curiosity and yet the men in the images don't seem phased by their haphazard surroundings.

This broken backdrop photography series combines the art of modeling with the art of play. While its subjects appear stern and sophisticated, these props provide a seemingly innocent and youthful essence. The entire series boasts a cohesive flow with a color scheme that uses light pastel backdrops paired with dark neutral male attire.
