"Still life" explores the surprising relationship that people entertain - beyond sexuality - with vibrantly realistic erotic dolls. Treated as spouses in all respects, these female replicas play a role in the daily emotional lives of an ever-increasing number of men.
As part of the "Still Life" show, photographs of the environment were also displayed. Taken in the small, surreal environment of a suburbia manufacturing plant where the dolls come to life in the hands of skilled artisans. Jean-François put together a studio to shoot the dolls, but his documentary photography impulses led him to explore the plant, and uncover the peculiar atmosphere that reigns in the nondescript industrial building. « It was a small, surreal environment in a suburbia manufacturing plant where the dolls came to life in the hands of skilled artisans. » - Jean-François Bouchard
