Artist: Clement Briend

Photography, in its most purest form, captures a time, a place, and an emotion. This photographer however, takes this to a very real and hauntingly beautiful level. French photographer Clement Briend and his ghostly projections, often large-scale faces or masks that emerge from trees, have been spotted on the streets of Berlin, Paris, and Cambodia. This creative endeavour consists of digitally projecting the bursts of divine creatures in Cambodian culture onto tree foliage to produce some truly awe inspiring results.

Cambodian culture is deeply rooted in a spirituality

As Mr. Briend explains, “Cambodian culture is deeply rooted in a spirituality – marked by a belief in genii and fantasy creatures. In a dark cityscape, night reveals the presence of divine creatures on trees and subsequently makes them alive and real. Such nocturnal visions allow us to grasp the way magic profoundly influences how Cambodian people perceive the world.”

One can not help but find beauty in end result.
