Charles Petillon – ‘Invasions’

In his series ‘Invasions‘ French photographer Charles Pétillon uses balloons to materialize his ideas of unseen, unsaid, missed, forgotten in a poetic way. He builds in situ installations made of white balloons in places all around the world ranging from Calais and Dover beaches to the streets of Shanghai or to the black slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily. He creates a unique relationship between the ephemeral aspect of the installation and the photograph, which is the only testimony of something that does not exist anymore.
