Category and Expertise: Fine Art-Other, Professional
Entry Description: Since the beginning, the world of Reine Paradis has been vibrant and colorful. Growing up in the countryside of South France, Paradis cultivated her awareness and imagination alongside her picturesque surroundings. After studying art in Paris, she then moved to Los Angeles in 2012, where she instantly felt inspired by the new landscape and started developing Jungle; her first photographic series.
Many of the photographs were shot in Los Angeles, however some of the locations were a bit more exotic, like a mountain glacier, a desert gulch, and a lake inside of a crater; each discovery is a story in and of itself. All the objects are meticulously designed and placed within the scene, along with Paradis herself as the central figure.
