Anne-Laure Maison Creates Montages of Lights and Imagination

At night, lighted windows from houses and apartments seem to be telling a personal story of their inhabitants, and French artist Anne-Laure Maison was so intrigued by the idea that she created a series of montages departing from this concept.

These illuminated pieces tell narratives with light and shapes by silently interrupting the privacy of people. During night time, Maison took pictures of doors and windows, and then rearranged them to create the pieces. The artist declares, "When I gaze at these windows, I like to tell myself a story. I capture these intimate moments and build my own imaginary structures." These captures are mesmerizing because the frames and colors of the structures and their interiors form geometrical patterns and light visual art.

Anne-Laure Maison located herself as an active voyeur to manipulate her shots and give a new meaning to the night.
