isabelle & alexis explode color bombs to create ephemeral and vivid scenes

colorful clouds trespassing calm landscapes — that’s the blossom project, the result of a collaboration between french photographers isabelle chapuis and alexis pichot. from morocco to the US and turkey, the pair travels around the world looking for the perfect setting to let their colorful clouds create ephemeral and vivid compositions.

the blossom project by isabelle chapuis and alexis pichot adds a sensual layer to abandoned cityscapes and desolated landscapes. through the use of colored smoke bombs, the series turns these spaces — even if it’s just for some minutes — into dreamy, fragile and mysterious scenes. with the images, the duo aims to raise awareness on human interventions created on earth by suggesting human presence among the natural or abandoned landscapes.

‘isabelle & alexis direct intervention in the landscape and ephemeral characteristic can safely be compared to land art’s approach and robert smithson’s conceptual oeuvre in particular,’ comments claire alliot-soto, art advisory at paris palma. ‘whereas their choice of abandoning all suggestions of figuration to focus their attention on the expressive power of colour recalls abstract expressionism and the likes of rothko and newman.’
