yurei : the japanese for ghost. 

An empty house at the early summer in Tokyo.


At that time of the year there are many stories or festivals toward ghosts.

I made this collection inspired by these stories, following the idea of creating an ambiance that would mix my western cultural background and these japanese traditional stories.

I have been inspired by two films who had a strong visual impact in my childhood," Sylvie et le fantôme" from Claude Autant-Lara, a classic french film from the 40's, its lyrism, its innocence , the work on the light and composition of the frame and the classic and very famous "the shining" from Kubrick, its coldness and terrifying precision but also colours and composition.
