A young artist duo, a photographer came together in Hydra Island in Greece to create eerie images of an aquatic eco-fiction. All actors of the project are aiming to creatively represent the space below the surface as a vulnerable world that needs to be explored, understood and protected. This Side of Paradise offers a playful approach showcasing retro-futurist figures inside a monochrome submarine forest. Discovering a new milieu, the personages act as guardians ready to defend an unknown species. The fictional black and white plantation is made from the wooden sculptures of Forlane 6 Studio. The artist duo Hortense Le Calvez and Mathieu Goussin were shot by adventurer and free-diver photographer Alexandre Voyer, they are wearing the wetsuits of Kalypse who supported the project.
