Karine Laval – ‘Heterotopia’

Karine Laval‘s series ‘Heterotopia‘ – a beautiful luminous distorted alternate universe.

Heterotopia is described by French philosopher Michel Foucault as a space neither utopia nor dystopia but rather, a space of duality and contradiction.

Mastering light and colour by placing mirrors and sheets of glass between the leaves, branches, flowers and bushes in front of her camera, photographer Karine Laval (French, who lives in New York) creates her layered manipulated reality and turns Long Island gardens into a vivid and exotic netherland.
