The Unsual Portrait
The quintessential approach of Paris-based photographer Estelle Hanania creates an enchantment behind some of the uncanny scenarios she presents. Her interest in au courant tales with a documentary quality entices audiences pursuing refreshed visuals. Photographing subjects in a manner that transforms the energy of her work into a concept camouflaged in mystery Hanania experiments with contrasting themes to generate specific imagery.
Renowned for her experimentation of large-scale prints, Hanania’s photographs have appeared in Vice, T The New York Times, Dazed & Confused and Tank magazine among others, and commissioned by fashion brands Maison Margiela, Issey Miyake, Véronique Leroy and Hermés.
Identity is a strong source of inspiration for Hanania who doesn’t distinguish the ethics of her practice. Orchestrating elements of her artisanal work based on composition and rhythm she creates a substantial anecdote that forms a dialogue with the audience.
