The visuals in these Emmanuelle Bousquet photos are not something you encounter on an everyday basis. After all, it’s not too common you see pictures that effortlessly evoke that ethereal sensation you experience while dreaming. That familiar feeling forces viewers to hopelessly empathize with each depiction and be drawn into a seductive fantasy world, where spectral ladies float weightlessly in the air and babies are being cared for by ghostly apparitions. Hollywood movies that try to replicate dream visuals should study this Paris-based photographer’s work for tips.

Emmanuelle Bousquet aptly titles this collection ‘Illusion,’ and upon initial viewing, audiences may be convinced these images are actually paintings thanks to Bousquet’s highly technical photo manipulation skills and blurring effects. It’s this kind of mastery over her craft that makes Bousquet worthy of her numerous awards.
