Out of Scale

Paris-born artist Jean-François Fourtou uses a mix of his childhood memories and inspiration from Alice in Wonderland to create a surreal series of his own entitled Mes Maisons (My Houses). The contemporary artist, who currently lives and works in Marrakech and Madrid, produces illusionary images that play with one's perception of scale. The photographs switch between depicting tiny people in a world made for giants and hulking figures in hilariously small rooms. Rather than using technology to do the optical trick, Fourtou chooses to create environments around his subjects that alter their size ratios. By creating extremely large or dollhouse-sized furniture, he gives the impression of distorted proportions.
