A ritual is often viewed as a very mysterious event, as the photo series titled Ceremonials by Jean-Sebastien Monzani shows. Although, this series takes the mysterious factor up a notch. This freelance photographer, graphic designer, illustrator and video-artist has injected a fair dose of eerie narrative that preys on the viewer's imagination. By creating images that are dubious by nature, anything is possible.

Although the symbolic references are hard to interpret in the photo series Ceremonials by Jean-Sebastien Monzani, each image poses new questions that the viewer unwittingly begins to answer. By doing so, an interaction, and therefore connection, is born that may otherwise not have been there. And since no explanation ever emerges, this series is subject to various interpretations, none of them right or wrong.
