Tragedies unfortunately happen to people all the time, and Marina Gadonneix's work thrives off of staged disasters she makes them into stunning pieces of artwork. Travelling to crime scene-replicating schools and experiencing first-hand staged disasters, Gadonneix translates those emotions into her photos. There is a mixture of awe and fear that is palpable in each picture.
Some of the photos include charred remains of furniture, buildings on fire and most shockingly, a fake dead body. Knowing that these are all staged does not help to get rid of the fear that comes with these images. The realistic quality of them is astounding, and it gives a first person perspective on what it may feel like to be present. Somehow, Gadonneix has been able to make her disaster photography both beautiful and terrifying.
