This Campaign will fund the cost of printing a self published, fine art book showcasing the photo series entitled "Jungle" by artist Reine Paradis. See the photo series at www.reineparadis.com.

Since it's completion in June 2016, the photo series 'Jungle' by Reine Paradis, has taken on a life of its own. After the first week of their release, the images spread across 100's of blogs, soon after being picked up by dozens of online publications, as well as print magazines around the world. Then, in the summer, Paradis sold out her first exhibition in Los Angeles and was met with acclaim from critics and collectors. Soon after, Flaunt Magazine commissioned Paradis for a two page photo spread in their biggest issue of the year and since then, the demand for her work has grown and grown. 

This book is an effort to open up the world of Paradis to more people. 

Not only will this book show the complete series in the most vivid and highest quality printing available today, it will also contain insight into the ideas, inspirations and the process behind the work. With an introduction written by the acclaimed author, Jean-Paul Gavard Perret, and a special behind the scenes account of the adventures of making each image, this book is a necessity for all lovers of art and photography.

Help us make this book a reality by becoming not only a patron, but a part of the beautiful world of Reine Paradis.

THE BOOK:  It will be 60 pages and will include all the images part of the "Jungle" photo series as well as the sketches and maquettes that enabled the creation of each final image. The format will be 12 x 10 inches (30.5 x 25.5 cm). The text is written by acclaimed author: Jean-Paul Gavard Perret and will be in both English and French. Inside the cover there will be another small book narrating the story behind each scene. It will be beautifully printed by a fine art specialized printer in the US.

The book will be launched at the opening of Reine Paradis' upcoming exhibition in Paris, France. At the Hug Gallery on June 8th 2017.

Cette campagne financera le coût de l'impression d'un livre d'art présentant la série de photos intitulée "Jungle” réalisée par l'artiste Reine Paradis. Découvrez la série de photos sur ce site web: www.reineparadis.com.

Après la première semaine de leur publication en Juin 2016, les images de la série "Jungle" se sont répandues sur des centaines de blogs, peu après elles ont été recueillies par des dizaines de publications en ligne, ainsi que des magazines imprimés à travers le monde. Puis, en été, Paradis a eu sa première exposition à Los Angeles et a été récompensée par des critiques et des collectionneurs. Peu de temps après, le magazine Flaunt a commandé à Paradis une photo de deux pages dans son plus important magazine de l'année et, depuis lors, la demande pour son travail a grandi et s'est développée.

Ce livre a pour objectif de partager le monde de Paradis à plus de gens.

Non seulement le livre montrera la série complète “Jungle" imprimée avec la plus vive et la plus haute qualité disponible aujourd'hui, il contiendra également un aperçu des idées, des inspirations et du processus derrière le travail. Avec une introduction écrite par l'auteur acclamé, Jean-Paul Gavard Perret, et un compte rendu spécial sur les aventures de la réalisation de chaque image, ce livre est une nécessité pour tous les amateurs d'art et de photographie.

Aidez-nous à faire de ce livre une réalité en devenant non seulement un mécène, mais aussi en devenant une part du beau monde de Reine Paradis.

LE LIVRE: Il sera de 60 pages et comprendra toutes les images de la série photographique "Jungle" ainsi que les croquis et les maquettes qui ont permis la création de chaque image finale. Le format sera de 30,5 x 25,5 cm. Le texte est écrit par l'auteur acclamé: Jean-Paul Gavard Perret et sera en anglais et en français. À l'intérieur de la couverture, il y aura un autre petit livre dans lequel vous pourrez découvrir l'histoire derrière chaque scène. Il sera magnifiquement imprimé par un imprimeur spécialisée dans les beaux livres d'arts aux États-Unis.

Le livre sera lancé lors de l'ouverture de l'exposition à venir de Reine Paradis à Paris, en France. À la Galerie Hug le 8 juin 2017.

THE PHOTO SERIES:

Reine Paradis constructs narrative photographs staging herself as the central figure in a surreal landscape. Paradis is dressed in orange in her images and is shown interacting in color filled landscapes.

Shot in many locations throughout America, the photo series "Jungle" takes us on an introspective journey across a symbolic and chromatic world, projected above the limit of reality and imagination.

​All the scenes are imagined and conceptualized before shooting in real locations. Once the scene is visualized in it’s entirety, Paradis makes sketches and paints the scene to use as a blue print when photographing the final scene. All the costumes, accessories and origamis are meticulously designed and prepared according to the initial vision of the scene.

Each scene is an adventure and a story in and of itself.

                                                    --------------

Reine Paradis construit des photographies narratives se mettant en scène dans un paysage surréaliste. Dans ses images Paradis est vêtue de costumes de couleur orange et interagit dans des paysages aux couleurs intenses.

Shootée dans de nombreux endroits à travers l’Amérique, la série photo «Jungle» nous emmène dans un voyage introspectif à travers un monde symbolique et chromatique, projeté au-delà des limites de la réalité et de l’imagination.

Toutes les scènes sont imaginées et conceptualisées avant d’être shootées dans des endroits réels. Une fois que la scène est visualisée dans sa totalité, Paradis fait des croquis et peint la scène qui sert ensuite de référence lors de la photographie de la scène finale. Tous les costumes, accessoires et origamis sont méticuleusement conçus et préparés selon la vision initiale de la scène.

Chaque scène est une aventure et une histoire en elle-même.
