« Last year I had an accident and had to spend my recovery time into a bed for more than three months. During this time, my ritual routine was to watch at a lot of contemporary photography. I started to feel tired of always seeing representation of human bodies. So I decided to create my own bodies. It took me half a year to recover and this time was used to design and create the costumes. I am sharing this personal fact to spread a message that whatever happens in life, always try to do a work of alchemy with it, transform the negative experiences into positive ones. »

Love was Sweet and Warm as a Tangerine Sunrise is a summer love-story between a man and a woman made of wool. The scene takes place on a paradisiac tropical Island in the Seychelles. It is the first of a long « wool-mance » series about love- relationships.
