Joanna – by Johann Bouché-Pillon

In this exclusive series for Shrill Cats, Paris-based photographer and art director Johann Bouché-Pillon welcomes us into a psychedlic world with his muse Joanna, who is an art historian.

The inspiration for this series came from the extravagant and beautiful disarray of elements found in Japanese photo movements, with flowers, japanese comics, colourful backgrounds, and a kaleidoscope of various elements presenting themselves in the set.

We mixed our selection of styles and also created costumes made with anonymous materials & objects found from the nearest supermarkets. We composed the things on her, trying to arrange elements to obtain the best visual results to realize the final goal of a visual extravaganza in the style of “Araki”, inspired by cinematographer Takashi Miike.

The final results are beautifully unique and characteristic, full of colours, textures, and a flurry of seemingly random visuals that are both edgy and harmonious at the same time. Pretty incredible.
