The Book


Divided into emotional chapters, this book opens the doors to a singular vision of the portrait and the staging of each of these women whose secret Laurent Castellani has. They have been scrupulously chosen for their singularity, plunging us at the same time into the macro-portrait and cinematographic universe that he is particularly fond of, notably Lynch’s dreamlike universe.

The Photographer


Being agoraphobic means being constantly confronted with yourself. It’s defending an ordinary life. To be agoraphobic is to observe an inner duel where the unconscious always comes out the winner. To go out is to suffer. Laurent build up on this and manage to transform his suffering into a strength. Provoking motionless journeys, experiencing the creation of macro-portrait… The photographer plays with distances and space.

About the Book


What will you find inside reverie

Between shadow and light, the grain of the skin, the slightest shiver is exacerbated. Laurent Castellani plays the close-up shot as an expression of its relationship to spacean. The macro-portrait is the art of exploring the beauty close at hand and creating intimacy, the image creation pushing us to whisper.

Laurent oscillates at the border of reality and imagination in his photos as in his films. Each shot is an emotion. Beauty emerges, natural and wild. Minimalist in the soul and in his approach, Laurent Castellani seeks above all the essential: a vibration.

His “Mulholland Drive” series, included in the book, was born one summer night under the Cheviré bridge in Nantes. These pictures be witching, timeless, almost frightening, caught in the darkness of an urban setting sign some kind of hatching. Laurent Castellani considers them as his revelation.
