La Rose des Vents is a photo series that deals in the surreal. Created for a theater that goes by the same name, it sets a playful tone that will inspire both creativity and imagination. Interestingly enough, the images are not as fantastical as they first appear. Instead of using blatant photo manipulations, La Rose des Vents revolves around strategic uses of colorful props.

Shot by French photographer Elene Usdin, the La Rose des Vents photo series diverges from her usual fashion photoshoots. Presenting oddities in design and human behavior, each still becomes a story filled with intrigue and mystery. As stated on her website, Usdin "tell[s] these stories through the use of fashion" and "continues to take photographs of young models, with the aim of capturing their beauty and their magic."
