Œillères

  • Photographer
    Roberto Greco

With the Œillères series, the flowers I shot
becomes an allegory of the human condition.
Suspending the moment of decay, wherein that
volatile yet neglected moment of decline is
magnified. What is beauty?
At a time when what
surrounds me appears, smooth and lean the
bodies depicted echo the flora.With shrouded
faces, focus remains on the corporeal, the
flesh.  

Œillères is a series comprised of 31 images, and
a bespoke scent, "L'Objet Parfumant"
accompanies the photographic series. It was
created under my artistic direction by Parisian
perfumer after two years of hard work, the
amount of time required to achieve the desired
effect: an anti-flower fragrance.  
The leather box is conceived as a limited edition
of 19 pieces, each numbered set consists of a
glass object containing the fragrance and 3
random prints. It will be available at exhibitions,
where the whole series will be framed in variable
sizes range from 25x30cm to 130x105cm
