A different lens on love: too big to be contained, frothing from notions of domesticity and security. Delicate white balloons spill from a suburban home somewhere/anywhere, a scene staged by French photographer Charles Pétillon as part of his latest project Invasions (on view at La Maison de la Photographie in Lille, France through March 22), a surreal scene that speaks to me of love defying structure. “By adding this uncanny element to seemingly mundane scenery, Pétillon challenges our notion of the visual experience, forcing us to see beyond our expectations,” writes Gina Liberto in today’s T Magazine. He’s challenging notions of my emotional experience too, forcing me to see beyond my expectations (through this buoyantly watchful dress), to see a heart overflowing.
