The French photographer Jean-Francois Rauzier has been working for almost thirty years in the field of surrealist photographs or, as he calls them, ‘hyperphotos’. His vast landscape images of beaches made of clocks instead of sand or Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors flooded with water certainly capture the imagination.
However, it is his latest project, due to be presented in London later this month, which caught my eye. A series entitled ‘Animales’ depicts an array of animals, from the exotic to the quotidian in their least natural environment – the big city. The pictures are fairly spectacular.
