There is a "coté Melies" in Christophe Wild, artist, poet, and unlikely handyman...
In a world that ubiquitously displays 3D with standardized and repetitive effects, Christophe continues to opt for the shorter D system, which he cleverly uses in his photography... To start, he creates a detailed storyboard of his project, anticipates its technical difficulties and devises ways in which they can be overcome. He then mixes traditional and digital techniques - natural light or studio photography, models, 2D illustration, matte painting - in an effort to render them indiscernable in the final outcome...
His roughman pub experience, his passage through the videogaming universe, and his collaboration with numerous acclaimed photographers taught him to let go of the reigns of a rigourous framework of imagination, to push the limits rather than stop short at them. As an amateur of '50s SF and genre cinema, Christophe Wild is currently working on numerous graphic novel projects while he waits to step behind the camera...
As for tomorrow, who knows what will appear from beneath the hat of this devil magician?
