Christelle Boulé turns liquid scents into galaxies of light and color.
Swiss-Canadian photographer and art director Christelle Boulé developed a unique and experimental process to transform perfumes into visually striking photograms: In a laboratory, one drop of a scent is applied directly onto photographic paper. Once the perfume has dried, the paper is exposed to light and undergoes an elaborate color development process that allows the perfume to appear. Together with Boulé we chose 15 striking visuals from her Drops series to highlight here. Learn more about Christelle’s process and her passion for scent!
Fore those fond of traveling: more images from the Drops series will be part of the Official Selection of the Photography Festival Boutographies 2017, held in Montpellier in May.
